When I got to meet our governor years ago, I found him to be sweet and down to earth. So news that he rappelled down a 32-floor apartment building Thursday in Denver seemed to fit the fit man.  He did it to raise awareness for the Cancer League of Colorado. He said that doing it was "pure fear" but nothing like facing cancer.

Back when he was merely the mayor of Denver, he parachuted out of a plane, so this
isn't the first time he's ventured out of his comfort zone.
