Jon Benet

Ten years later, it appears to be over. The long arm of the law managed to stretch into the sex-with-minors mecca of Bangkok. As an added sidebar bonus, the arrest of Jon Benet Ramsey’s alleged killer gave the local papers an excuse to drag out Gary Glitter’s picture to punctuate the evils and pervasiveness of international pedophilia. Rock and roll part who?

The Boulder police biffed this one in a big way, pretty much from the get-go. The fact that the killer might’ve been apprehended is remarkable, and a testament to those involved who were committed to seeing justice done. The media people who painted the Ramseys as guilty for so many years should feel profound levels of shame. They won’t, but they should.

When I went to Boulder a few years ago, a friend drove me around to “see the sights.” I saw the college where the opening shot of “Mork and Mindy” was filmed. I saw cool mountain views. And I saw the Ramsey house. Nice neighborhood, really.

What a nightmare, start to presumed finish.
