Tom Snyder Long live Snyder, the host of the The Late Late Show, who died at the age of 71 yesterday. TMZ reports his catchphrase on the show Tomorrow, was “Fire up a colortini, sit back, relax and watch the pictures, now, as they fly through the air." What the hell is a colortini?
Colortini Wikipedia, that always reliable repository of minutia, reports that a Colortini is a mythical drink Snyder invented as the perfect alcoholic companion to his show.

Rural Cellular Marketwatch.com is reporting Verizon has agreed to buy the Alexandria, Minnesota-based Rural Cellular Corp. for $2.67 billion.
