Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

Bah Humbug

The People's Republic of Boulder isn't known for supporting Republican causes, but gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez should send a big bouquet to the DA's office there. Because yesterday's announcement that the Boulder DA finally has a suspect in the JonBenet Ramsey murder may have been the only thing that could boot his beleaguered running mate, Janet Rowland, from the headlines.

No sheep, Sherlock.
