Reader: Colorado Tomato Battle is one juicy story

You say tomato, I say tomato -- either way, it hurts like hell when you're hit by a green one. And it smells worse when you're hit by a rotten one, as Natalie Gonzales learned when she joined in the Colorado Tomato Battle this past weekend.

The event brought back memories -- not all of them olfactory.

Says Luis:

Having attended the Twin Lakes affair of yore, I truly enjoyed the coverage of this "controlled" mayhem. Suggestion: teams are good, a fort to siege is better!!!

What would you do with 50,000 pounds of rotten tomatoes? Post your suggestions below.
