Perhaps this quickly becomes irrelevant whent he topic areas are announced
in a couple of days, but among all of the discussion on the validity of
predetermining that next year's topic will be "legal" has anyone clarified
exactly what that means?  I was originally operating under the notion that
this meant the resoultion would be about constitutional issues/the supreme
court, but discussions recently have susggested that a legal topic could
include anything from IPR, internet regulation, detainment policies, or
ilaw.  While i guess the term "legal" implies the word "law" and thus it
would be reasonable to assume that the resouiton will require affirmatives
to affect the law, i don't know if that's different than the last 50 topics
we've had.  Thus the question, what are the exact limits on next year's
topic's scope?
