Barry's got another great line-up of guests today!
Senator Barbara Boxer will be talking with Barry during the very beginning of the show Sunday, Feb. 19, about the inquiry that the Republicans have apparently thwarted into the NSA wiretapping. She will also tell us about her new novel, "A Time to Run" (Read more below, including about her book signing this Wednesday evening at Book Soup in West Hollywood).
Deborah Burger, President of the California Nurses Association, will be talking about the California Clean Money Campaign and other issues important to the health care community.
"Barry's Bookshelf" will feature Mark Crispin Miller, professor of media studies at NYU and author of the just-released book "Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election, and Why They'll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them)." (For another great work about election fraud, see the DVD "Invisible Ballots," below.) Mark's previous books include "The Bush Dyslexicon" and "Cruel and Unusual: Bush/Cheney's New World Order."
In the third hour, we'll be talking to author Ben Kaplan about his book, "How to Go to College Almost for Free." With February beginning the 2006 financial application season, he'll be clueing our listeners into all the tricks in his book. He is also making available FREE packets at his website, www.scholarshipcoach.com
In the coming weeks, Barry's guests will include more celebrated experts and insiders. Check back for schedule updates or sign up for "The Dugout" to receive breaking news!
Barry's latest picks and recommendations in books:
A Time to Run. In her debut novel, Sen. Barbara Boxer relates "a story I had long wanted to tell" about aspiring political activist Josh Fischer and aspiring journalist Greg Hunter who are best friends and roommates at 1970s Berkeley. Publishers Weekly says "Boxer brings been-there nuance to the backbiting, hazardous personal disclosures and naked power mongering of California and Washington politics." Senator Boxer will present and sign "A Time to Run" at Warwick's Books in San Diego on Tuesday, February 21 at 7:30 p.m. and at Book Soup on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood (8818 Sunset Blvd., W. Hollywood, CA 90069) on Wednesday, February 22 at 7 p.m.
Invisible Ballots (on DVD) is an in-depth expose' of all-electronic computerized voting, with no paper trail to audit, by companies with little government oversight.

America, Fascism and God: Sermons from a Heretical Preacher by Davidson Loehr In a mere 140 pages, Dr. Loehr offers his own brand of non-religious religion. In his opinion, God is less like a puppeteer and more like a hand puppet, being manipulated by human beings to pursue their own, often less-than-holy agendas. Along the way, he takes on the icons of fundamentalism, capitalism and corporatism, and smashes them like so many golden calves. He also takes on liberals for failing to offer a moral values-based alternative to conservatives. If you are a "true believer," beware! This book will shake you up.
