Kelly brings up an interesting and good point. I
think I have some authority on this b/c A) Jackie has
deemed me the debater in charge of beating cases on T
and B) I have also be deemed the debater wanting to
run squirrel cases....what does this mean?
Yes, people will run small hot wheels cases and lose
on T. But those same people will lose when they go
for T against me running my tiger penis case. Ed Lee
is totally on when he says if we rely on substantial
to limit our topic we will have a topic about what the
word substantial means (worst topic ever).
