In a hilarious NYTimes article, State Senator Bob Hagedorn, and the Colorado General Assembly, backtrack about the meaning of the John Denver song that they just proclaimed as the new additional state song. (It shares the title with Where Columbines Grow)
They want to make absolutely clear, that the Rocky Mountain High is an endorphin rush, but not the kind that is produced by illicit drugs. Instead, this kind comes from nature, guys fishing, and chocolate.

i know that John Denver isn’t the kind of music that i usually post about, but this article is just too funny. the idea of congress people talking about what a rocky mountain high is well, HI-larious!
and, on that note, what does go on in Grandma’s Feather Bed? that song is graphic, yo.
