    Aaron, in the spirit of tonight's final Presidential debate, you should use a debate format for tonight's pitch contest. Would be a lot of fun...wish I could be there.

    Apologies to Aaron, but a conflict has come up on my calendar for late afternoon/early evening, so I am unable to make it over to Hoboken today. My meetup registration is open to whomever would like to use it, its pre-paid under the name Glenn Bachmann, no need to reimburse me. See you all next month!
