Article About Debate Generates Debate

It's no less true just because it's massively pathetic to say that the proudest moment of accomplishment in my life might have occurred during my time as a high school debater. Most successful debaters surpass such a moment, because they go on to become decorated lawyers or advocates for important causes or powerful politicians. Me, I like blogging.

Anyway, Jim over at Encyclopedia Hanasiana is doing his part to keep debate in the spotlight, taking the stuffing out of the Liberty University team that was profiled in last weekend's New York Times Magazine.

Thanks for the link. But no debate shame for me.

One of my proudest moments still is taking Pitt completely by surprise in the finals at Nebraska. Their case increased sanctions on South Africa. I head-faked Prolif but went for Topicality, arguing that an increase did not represent a "substantial change." They totally dropped it -- and their case was soooo topical.

Ah, those were the days.

No debate shame here, either. Hell, no. Just lots of shame about everything since.
