Stephen Colbert Gets a Double Scoop of AmeriCone Dream
Ice Cream’s Ben & Jerry Salute Flavor on “The Colbert Report”
BURLINGTON, Vt.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Nation will have to tune-in for sweet surprises as legend-dairy ice cream co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s visit Stephen Colbert and “The Colbert Report” to celebrate and discuss his new ice cream, AmeriCone Dream, on Monday, March 5 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Ben & Jerry’s new flavor is a decadent melting pot of vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl. It’s the sweet taste of liberty in your mouth. Colbert believes AmeriCone Dream can make a difference. “I’m not afraid to say it. Dessert has a well-known liberal agenda. What I hope to do with this ice cream is bring some balance back to the freezer case.”
Stephen Colbert is donating his proceeds from the sale of AmeriCone Dream to charity through The Stephen Colbert AmeriCone Dream Fund. The Fund will support charities of concern to Stephen such as food and medical assistance for disadvantaged children, helping veterans and their families, and environmental causes. “I will save the world,” said Colbert.

Amazing first person helmet-mounted video of a skydiver who fell 12,000 feet with a failed chute and lived.
The NOAA National Weather Service today announced plans to implement the Enhanced Fujita (EF) Scale to rate tornadoes to replace the original Fujita (F) Scale. The EF Scale will continue to rate tornadoes on a scale from zero to five, but ranges in wind speed will be more accurate with the improved rating scale.

Help me send a message to Congress:
Now is the time to act on global warming.
I know from personal experience that the only thing that will make Washington really take notice and do something to solve the climate crisis is the prospect of millions of committed citizens taking action. It’s time to join together and make that happen.
