A family gathering

Judging from our Summer Intern dinner last night, our industry has a robust future. My thanks for all our 2011 interns and our new desk assistants for letting me yammer on about life and the industry and journalism. They all stayed awake—and surprisingly, there was pizza left over. A first. They are a remarkably fit group...on top of being bright and eager.

On the broadcast tonight we'll remember Hall of Famers from two sports: The great John Mackey of the Baltimore Colts (at least they used to be from Baltimore, until their owner famously packed up the team in the middle of the night and moved them to Indianapolis, and Dick Williams of baseball fame. Our condolences to their families, friends and former teammates.

We hope you can join us for our Thursday night broadcast.
