"Wyrick: Why Not?" Titans of Town Talk running for Senate, because no one else will
Titans for Senate
Since no one else seems to want to represent the Good People of the Great State of Colorado, we, the Titans of Town Talk are officially announcing our candidacy for the United States Senate.
We the Titans of Town Talk, whose secret identity as Randy Wyrick is a closely guarded gummint secret, would make a dandy United States Senator.
We have a platform, which we pretty much lifted from Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, who both perfected the political philosophy of plausible deniability:
– Policy: “Promise Everything.”
– Personal life: “Deny Everything.”
We even have a campaign slogan:
– “Wyrick: “Why Not?”
We have a bunch of other slogans, but the High Sheriff’s here at the Vaily Daily are stomping all over our freedom of speech and won’t let us use ’em, because this is the same page where we print pictures of 4-year old kids celebrating birthdays. They’ll soon be old enough to vote for the Titans, so our political hope springs eternal.
And here’s a sobering thought: If it’s not The Titans, it might just be Cacioppo. Don’t think carefully. Just vote for us.
We’ll bring you regular updates from the campaign trail, which drops us in warm places like Trinidad – the one in the U.S. Virgin Islands, not the town in Colorado.
Movin’ right along, trying to catch up with those runaway campaign contributions.
Birthday bash tonight
Linda’s second annual 40th birthday party is tonight. If you missed the first one, you’re in luck because they’re doing it again. You’re only young once – maybe twice. Linda Garrett and John Martin, plus friends, will be celebrating Linda’s birthday at The Tap Room/Sanctuary’s third floor, 6-9 p.m. tonight. The band “A Minor Addiction” will rock the house. It’s a bash. Be there.
Media Bias being discussed
The Vail Symposium is hosting a discussion 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Cordillera Valley Club in Edwards. “Media Bias: Has Something Gone Wrong?” is being led by John Haile, retired editor of The Orlando Sentinel. He’ll discuss what readers and viewers see as bias in the news, what has changed with our media and what has changed about our viewers and readers. Since it’s an election year, we’ll also delve into how much the political environment affected what we want from our media, and how we see the news. It’s $20 for Symposium supporters, $25 for everyone else. If you plunk down $35, you get the buffet dinner afterward. Call 476-0954 or http://www.vailsymposium.org.
Haynes Robinson will be at an artist’s reception, 5-7 p.m. Thursday. Robinson has been in the oriental carpet trade most of his life. Rugs by Robinson is in China, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Turkey and now Iran. You can see ’em at Ruggs Benedict.

Her other big house
This came to us from New York Magazine. Jailbird Diana Ross puts her place up for sale. Now that she’s out of the slammer (Set me free, why don’tcha baaaaabe! …), Diana Ross won’t be coming home to her Fifth Avenue co-op in the Sherry-Netherland. We hear the Motown legend, forced to serve a brief stint for DWIA, has put her 2,500-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment on the market for $9.2 million. For more than a decade, she’s lived there and presumably ordered room service from Harry Cipriani. Ross also has homes in L.A. and Connecticut. Her broker, Roger Erickson of William B. May, declined to comment.
