Mr. Ryerson’s Story

There’s an attorney I occasionally see at Juvenile court named John Ryerson, and I’d once asked him if he caught much flack over the character Stephen Tobolowsky plays in Ground Hog day, the obnoxious insurance salesman, Ned Ryerson.

He told me that he and his brothers had attended high school with Bill Murray and, apparently, Bill Murray decided that Ryerson was the perfect name for a total dweeb.  No word on whether the Ryerson clan plans on attending Bill Murray’s 50th reunion to waylay him in the parking lot.
