House Debates

Well, I have my head screwed on well enough to post something. Going through the e-mail I have accumulated, I see that House Minority Leader Matt Entenza and Speaker Steve Sviggum are going to be involved in a series of debates. I think this is very cool. The old-fashioned debate has gone by the wayside in these days of attack ads and Astroturf web campaigns, to the detriment of democracy. What would history be without the Lincoln/Douglas debates? Or JFK and Nixon? Sure, there are still debates, but not enough.

No matter what happens, I am glad to see this going forward. Sure, I'm a little late with the news, but I thought I would post anyway.
