Out of the Blue

Dinner last night was great, thanks for the early leave. Actually to be honest, dinner was terrible, as the diner chosen for the occasion was committing crimes against food, but the company was awesome, so we had a great time. And Shana Tova (nice, right?) to all who are celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. It's now 5774, but I'm sure I'll be writing 5773 on my checks for a couple of weeks yet (so happy I figured out how to double up on that joke every year). I'm very excited the NFL season kicks off tonight, and the early season is always fun due to the "everyone is a contender" illusion. Here's the promised reminder that we have a Blue's News competition underway on BeatTheInsiders, so set up a free account there and play along with us should you so desire.

Stories: Novato man sues Blue Man Group, claiming injury by ball at show.
