    The debate should actually be interesting. On a side note, I am proud of this blog for promoting an event that actaully has more than one side being presented. Quite the change from the norm.

    That first link information is quite laugh out loud though. I hope no one actually got paid to write up the quippy little sayings and so called “information” points. The low information crowd will should eat it up hook line and sinker.
