A strong candidate for the monthly in-house headline "contest," for sure:<p>DUI limit staggers downward<p>DENVER -- After years of resisting, Colorado is poised to join the 47 states that have lowered their blood-alcohol limits for driving under the influence.
The state Senate gave final approval Tuesday to House Bill 1021, which lowers the blood-alcohol standard for a DUI offense from .10 to .08, the national standard.

I saw a hed in a brief, "Eat out to benefit elementary school." Like Walsh says, "Every newsroom needs a 13-year-old boy."
