Dear Frost, at first I had difficulty reading your letter because half of it was a commercial for KOOL Radio.
You mentioned Barry Goldwater doing a commercial for Governor Evan Mecham in 1962. There’s another story from 1962. Both Goldwater and Mecham made an appearance before the National Convention of Young Americans for Freedom being held in Phoenix. Goldwater was the nationally known senator and front runner for the presidential nomination. Mecham was the Republican nominee for the other senate seat. Goldwater spoke for 30 minutes and got polite applause. Mecham spoke for 15 minutes and got two standing ovations. Later, Mecham’s wife, Flo, said to her husband, “You just made an enemy.” He asked, “Who’s my new enemy?” She said, “Senator Goldwater.” Mecham said, “He’s backing me for senator.” Flo said, “You didn’t see his face when you got that second standing ovation!”p>Let me ask you a question, Mr. Frost. If Barry Goldwater was not part of the lynch mob against Governor Mecham like you say, then what was he doing being part of it in 1987 and 1988? br> — Michael Skaggs br> Murray, Kentucky /p>
“FYI, as Program Director, ‘KOOL-Gold’ was the innovator; we started the ‘oldies’ format the previous July , now heard on 730+ radio stations nationally.”
That was you??p>Where’s my gun? br> — Stephen Foulard br> Houston, Texas /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
