The Great Escape
By Jim Babka
Four years ago, I met Bruce Shortt. Bruce, an attorney and homeschool parent, is a Southern Baptist. And each year at their annual meeting, his resolutions make news and move the denomination towards schooling independence. This year's resolution is my favorite yet.

Bruce will be my guest today on the Downsize DC Conference Call (radio show) and we'll talk about that resolution.

But Bruce is also the author of, "The Harsh Truth About Public Schools." It's not enough to criticize -- many people need government schools, right?

Well, we're going to put Bruce to the test. I want to know how more kids can be helped to "escape" the government schooling system.

And I invite you to put Bruce to the test too. Let's see if he can get an "A."

Quiz Bruce at 1-800-259-9231 or email your exam question to call at DownsizeDC dot org.

I'll also have a Gun Owners of America update.

The hour-long show starts at 4 PM Eastern (3 PM Central, 2 PM Mountain, and 1 PM Pacific).

The show broadcasts on: KLID 1340-AM, Poplar Bluff, Missouri; WBCR 1470-AM Maryville, Tennessee; and WKLP 1390-AM Keyser, West Virginia. Sometimes, it's on Radio Free Austin.

But for most of you the best way to tune in is via the web at the Genesis Communications Network website.

Tune in. Call in.

Thanks for your support,
