I’m back! The debate went well, easily one of the biggest bloodbaths of my career. When your opponent is in his second rebuttal round saying “Soon I’m going to give evidence for my position,” it’s usually a good sign that things are going well. I’ll post the video as soon as it’s up.
One of the travails of touring the country giving talks and doing debates is that you expose yourself to a whole host of viruses and such that you ordinarily wouldn’t. It’s common for speakers to spend much of the Spring and Fall (the busy speaking times) sick. So, of course, I returned from this jaunt to the South with a cold. Lame.
