Tom Snyder, RIP

Tom Snyder passed away at 71. I'll always remember him for Today. and Tomorrow. And the Late, Late Show. One other thing - if any of you remembers "Freakazoid", the Steven Spielberg cartoon that ran the same time as "Animaniacs" and "Pinky and the Brain", Tom was in one episode where people kept getting zapped away by a mad scientist. Snyder was pictured on a talk show where he hosted Pope John Paul II. The Pope was about to speak when Snyder said "Just a minute, Pontiff" and then went to some caller from Iowa and started to reminisce about an old story. Snyder was then zapped away and the Pope just smiled.

A talk show legend who refused to take no for an answer.
