I'd like to be able to reference a news story in this post but I can't, no thanks to the "super-sleuths" in the Colorado press corps. Apparently, I have to get my news about the pro-family Bill Owens (according to the rumors, he is so pro-family that he has two of them) from the kid bagging my groceries at King Soopers.
Surely, some reporter, maybe even someone at the irreverent Westword, has heard what seemingly everyone in Colorado is talking about. Normally, I don't like it when reporters pry into the personal lives of public figures. However, when that public figure upholds himself as a scion of wholesome family values, then he is fair game. Bill Owens vetoes a bill on emergency contraception information for victims of rape, citing the moral convictions of Catholic hospitals as the reason. Never mind that these hospitals accept public dollars and are licensed by the state.
And where's the Focus on the Family political cult in all of this? Rather than harassing Ken Salazar's wife they should be asking Bill Owens why he abandoned his. There's a reason why the Gov. and Frances Owens are separated, but you'll never hear about the reason from the servile Colorado media. And, I know you didn't hear it here first.
