[eDebate] [CEDA-L] Matt Grindy
Wed Feb 13 10:19:22 CST 2008
What a sad morning.
What Tuna and Matt said. Matt was a great inspiration.
Bureaucratically, I assume the process would be an Amendment to the CEDA By-Laws or Constitution which could be voted on at CEDA Nats if it got done very soon. Could someone in the know (Jeff?) please clarify?
One suggestion: I would hope that Dave Steinberg would have the honor of formally proposing that amendment.--Neil

We've lost one of the nicest people in debate, hands down. Any such award in his honor would be more than appropriate.
