Hide the kids: Tosches returning to Independent 

Next week, a bomb drops onto the Independent's pages.

Rich Tosches is coming back.

Tosches, the outrageous and sharp-edged columnist who spent the better part of two years at the Indy in a previous life OK, it was during 2004-05 has decided once and for all that the grass is greener now on this side of the newspaper fence.

"This is tremendous for us, and we know our readers will be excited to read Rich again," says Ralph Routon, Indy executive editor. "We're trying to figure out a new name for his column, and we're considering "Dazed and Confused' and "Naked in the City,' among many others. If any readers have ideas, please let us know.

"Rich doesn't have time to help. He's too busy catching up on Colorado Springs Utilities, The Broadmoor and his other great friends around the city."

Tosches spent the past two years at the Denver Post as the "Rocky Mountain Ranger," building a huge following in the paper and online. But the Post decided recently to make coverage changes, which meant discontinuing the column. Tosches chose to come back to the Indy. He had continued to live in Colorado Springs while working for the Post.

Says Tosches: "I'm coming back for the obvious reason: in case there's an empty seat on Utilities' CEO Jerry "Hell, It's Not Our Money' Forte's private jet on its weekly management team flight to Monaco."
