I’m sorry to report that I didn’t spend one second watching the latest round of bloviating and lecturing by our elected leaders. I don’t care anymore, because, frankly, neither do they. They don’t care about facts, or the truth. They aren’t interested in knowing what they are talking about, and I am sick of hearing them quoted as if they were. They are not, in fact, knowledgeable about anything at all pertaining to this issue.
They are not worth listening to.
Norman Frost is. He’ll face off in a real debate, with a moderator and rules, on NPR’s new intelligence2, on Tuesday the 23rd, and we’ll see how he likes arguing PED’s with people who know about a tenth of what he knows.
UPDATE: Here’s one recap of the debate:
…. Despite defending a pretty unpopular proposition (“We should allow performance enhancing drugs in sports”), the consensus seemed to be that our side more than held its own We started the night with just 18 percent of the audience favoring our position. After the debate, we pulled 37 percent, winning all of the undecideds, and even pulling 4 percent from the other side.
