JUST TELL YOUR DEPARTMENT CHAIR THE ISSUE IS "CONSTRUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT IN THE
MIDDLE EAST" DON'T TELL THEM THE RES. DUH!

We choose not to tell department chairs about speed in debate all the time
because some folks won't get it. And if they ask the res, explain to the
them why it was worded the way it was.

This is an ACADEMIC discipline. This ain't no presidential debate where we
have 30 second word bytes.Your ACADEMIC chairs might understand there is a
method to the madness of more complicated phrasing.

Also tell your new novices that the topic is "MIDDLE EAST ENGAGEMENT" and
then when you are teaching them, you can explain why it's complicated and
why it SHOULD be. Hell the Mid-East isn't an easy issue.

Finally, you ask why it couldn't have been shorter and simpler. READ THE
BLOG. The fact you are criticizing without understanding the logic is
indicative of the condescending and insulting attitude you seem to display.
