I support the First Amendment, but damn the free press. If it “bleeds-it-reads,” and the blood flowed in Colorado. Accordingly, the press finds itself in an orgasmic moment.

What sicko, seeing all this attention accorded one of their own, would not want the same? How long will it take for a repeat? Why can we not relegate this “news” to a middle page?
