Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The entire breadth of digitized human knowledge at their fingertips and this is what America is searching today:

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. Colortini.com was apparently maintained by Snyder until earlier this year when it was taken down. The domain name now returns a page offering links that send readers to hair-coloring websites.

Christy Freeman CNN will tell you all about it, I can't put the horror into words.

Rural Cellular Marketwatch.com is reporting Verizon has agreed to buy the Alexandria, Minnesota-based Rural Cellular Corp. for $2.67 billion. When reached for comment, some random Vikings fan said that, yes, he could indeed hear me now. I'm sorry for that joke, by the way. It hurt me more than it hurt you.

Los Angeles Girl Love God bless you, America.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
