"I think this is a fair ad, and I think Mitt Romney owes an explanation to the American people as to why he murdered JonBenét Ramsey," said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who called the commercial's black-and-white reenactment of Mitt Romney carrying a kicking and screaming child to her death "accurate." "Ultimately, voters need to know who they're getting with Mitt Romney: a job- and child-killing businessman who is so deceitful he won't release his tax returns or admit to a senseless murder that shook the nation to its core." (August 9, 2012)

Number 7"Geologists: 'We May Be Slowly Running Out Of Rocks'"

"Take the Rocky Mountains, for example: There's plenty of rocks right there," Colorado resident Kyle Peters said. "It's our right as Americans to use as many rocks as we need for whatever purposes we decide, and no scientist is going to scare me into thinking otherwise."

"This country was built on rocks," he added. "Remember that." (May 1, 2010)

I would be even more bummed out about it if they still had the AV Crossword in the back.

Here's Weedword's -- Voice Media's -- chance to scoop-up some low hanging fruit and JV with The Onion to continue their Denver print edition ... perhaps as an insert to WW's anemic print edition.

Or does WW want the comedic market all to itself?

It's understandable. More and more people read news (and satirical news) online nowadays. Maybe they can use the saved costs to produce more online material.

The Onion started out as a free-weekly in Madison Wisconsin. Back then it was black and white, but it was still awesome. They have expanded so much, and it's amazing how big they are now... but they lost much of their writing staff recently when management told them they all had to move from New York to Chicago. It will be interesting to see if they can stay at the top of their game through this.
