It's not easy being blue. Just ask California's Paul Karanson, a man who doesn't want to be shunned just because he has blue skin.

It's a pretty sad reflection on our society if we shun people because they are blue ! Of all the reasons to shun people ( because they are nasty, stupid, jerks, thoughtless, selfish, greedy, immoral) this really seems a very silly one indeed.

He drinks some kind of colloidal silver daily. Is this because he has a condition of some kind? Or just cause he wants to? I saw this on TV and it was unclear why he drinks it.

Hey I saw this guy on TV too. I didn't quite understand why his skin color changed. I mean is he suffering from a medical condition or is the skin color a desired change? This guy did not seem like he was seeking medical attention or a cure. I think if he is happy being blue...I am tickled pink...haha ha. All in all I thought it was a very interesting human interest story and the guy seemed like a "regular nice joe."

He moved from I think Seattle to Los Angeles because he thought he would have a better chance of being accepted there. Nothing against our blue man, but yet another reason to leave L.A.

He should move to Las Vegas and join the Blue Man Group!! http://www.blueman.com/

Either that, or he should move here to San Francisco... we certainly aren't judgmental, which is oddly annoying & scary to some people.
