So, it turns out that JonBenet Ramsey's parents really didn't kill her - you could have knocked me over with a feather on this one! I mean, after seeing two or three made-for-tv movies in the past 10 years practically re-creating how the Ramsey parents abused and killed their "Little Miss" daughter, plus watching a decade of journalists, analysts and other pundits persecute the Ramsey family for their alleged crimes, I honestly thought they did it.
This stunning announcements reminds me of a very stern journalism professor I had in college who would give us automatic zeros on any stories that implied someone was guilty of a crime. Too bad all of those folks at CNN and behind-the-scenes at the networks didn't have him too - it would have saved this family 10 years of persecution and hate.
