Every now and then, the timing just works out.
No sooner do we send the column to press than Clinton's bumblers prove the point, even Sandy Burglar, er, Berger, who said the flick "misrepresents" his actions. Well, he ought to know. He's the guy who burgled the National Archives and burned the evidence.
Yup, just the crowd you want censoring the stuff on your TV.

John Mark Karr got a clean bill of legal health from Boulder County as it now appears he couldn't have done it.
It, of course, was presiding over the death of JonBenet Ramsey, which was, as previously noted, most likely beyond his limited capacities in any case.
And speaking of limited capacities, how 'bout that Boulder DA's office? Kind of makes one rethink term limits because no voter no will experience the glee of rejecting the incumbent as she won't be on the ballot.

John Mark Karr wants us to think he had a hand in the death of JonBenet Ramsey.
One look at the guy, though, and you know that JonBenet would have kicked his butt in a fair fight.
Still, Karr has a knack for manipulation, as his business-class, chardonnay-drenched trans-Pacific flight attests.
Not bad for a guy with a guy who can't hide from his own unwanted alibi(s)

Gov. Bill Owens remains comfortably ensconced on the Front Range, dealing with oil and gas development in Weld County, where he helped engineer a deal that might work there, but not necessarily where the drilling is the busiest.
Which leaves us still wondering — when will the governor of Colorado deign to deal with the parts of Colorado he doesn't see from Interstate 25?

Check the latest from the paper edition and consider. It's time to start checking on when Bill Owens, R- Front Range, sallies out of the comfy environs of Denver to the wilds of western Colorado, which is, not, despite what some might believe, in a state different than that of the Front Range.
There are lots of things a governor could do here, not the least of them being to offer up a reality check on energy development to all sides. A governor could remind enviros that their reps did vote ...

Obviously, there's a drought on and so, no, this is not to advocate lawbreaking. But, we can pretty well expect the weenie brigade to claim a victory with the banning of fireworks this Independence Day. Just because most of us exercise good sense and suppress the natural impulse to blast off firecrackers, roman candles and the like doesn't mean that we should denied our pyromanic rights and delights on '07.

Super fans have heard it all. There are gay overtones to "Superman Returns," the flag-waving element is gone because he no longer stands for "Truth, justice and the American Way," and even rescues Germans.
Actually, it's worse than that.
For srtarters, ir's passion-free. It's not whether Superman (Christopher Reeve look-alike Brandon Routh) is gay, it's that he's nothing.. There's more electricity in between lemon and vinegar that there is between Routh and Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth), who ...

And some, like former #2 Al Gore, want it hot. But for all the jalapeños he says are inside, it's just not salsa.
Not that they would know that in New York City, of course.

The Defense Department has recognized the obvious, that 500 things that go boom and kill thousands meet the definition of weapons of mass destruction.
Will we no longer hear that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?
Not bloody likely.

The "little Eichmanns" of the World Trade Center had less notice, to be sure, of their impending change of status from living beings to atomized human matter, but we work differently in the West. Rather than simply fly planes into buildings unannounced to inflict as much destruction as possible, we give folks months, even years, to prepare for a change of job status. Granted, this one's extreme enough, in that it contemplates sending Churchill from having one to not having one, but it does ...

From a reader, with my response below:
Some of the cliches in today's column:
1. Aspen is full of liberals.
2. Michael Moore is fat.
3. Boulder is full of liberals.
4. Ward Churchill is a plagiarist.
I am suprised (sic) that the Sentinel would accept a column in which the combining of hackneyed cliches replaces creativity. It appears that the only part of this column which does not depend on a tired, worn premise is the insinuation that liberals admire Al Zarqawi -- did I miss ...

You can see today's dead-tree offering here. It's worthy of note that the only quibbling so far from the Backwater Beatnik crowd is over Che's birthplace, not his bloodthirst - a telling admission.

But I wish I had when I was writing this for the Thursday dead-tree edition.
Anyway, Happy Zarqawi Deathday greetings to one and all!

It might just be that some bad things were going in in his idyllic Iraq before the invasion that dumped him from power and into a "spider hole," from which he was helped by American soldiers.
It seems that the forerunners of Saddam's Minutemen, to employ Bill Maher's useful term, might have spared just minutes in their massacres of Iraqis.
Gee, if Saddam's henchmen would do this kind thing, you don't suppose they would set off improved explosive devices, do you?
But they ...

Yup, that's the exterior workings of an oil well. In, like, Beverly Hills. Despite the absence of a man named Jed, that's black gold, Texas tea, real money coming out of the ground in 90210.
Which has to make one think - if an oil well is good enough for Beverly Hills, what's wrong with lower-profile gas wells hidden by the underbrush out in western Colorado?
Gee, when was the last time we heard that the oil biz was good enough for Beverly Hills and the children of the stars?
