GOOD EVENING MR. AND MRS. NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA AND ALL SHIPS AT SEA,
LET?S GO TO PRESS.

The Kentucky Debate Institute Fellows staged their second demonstration
debate on Saturday, July 6th. Following the debate, Institute Instructor
Angelo Theodosopoulos filed this report:

"Hello from the Bluegrass where we bring you into the world of top class
competition.  In the second Kentucky Fellows debate Fellows Katrina Cadle
from Bishop Guertin and Michael Luxembourg from Georgetown Day School on the
affirmative debated Dakota Alcontera Camacho from Mercer Island High School
and Steven Murray from Westwood High School on the negative.

Katrina ?the truth? Cadle delivered the 1AC with great speed and poise. In
order to hold the mega corporations, e.g. Haliburton, responsible for the
rebuilding efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina the federal
government was prompted to subsidize green housing for those peoples
affected by the storm. The 1AC claimed that the plan would solve for racism
and biopolitical control.

Steven ?wrong but oh so right? Murray delivered the negative?s diversity of
arguments including a Spending disadvantage, States counterplan,
Psycho-analysis criticism and numerous case arguments responding to each
affirmative contention.

In answering the first negative constructive Michael ?superbad? Luxemberg
managed to increase the amount of off case positions in the debate by
criticizing the negative?s spending disadvantage.

The block held to the task with Dakota ?Patterson named me Geronimo?!??
Alcontera Camacho taking the states counterplan, the spending disadvantage,
luxemberg?s new off case position and a case advantage in the 2NC.  Steven
?zizek? Murray extended case arguments but focused his energies in extending
the negative?s criticism of the affirmative.

Katrina ?the hurricane? Cadle?s 1AR laid waste to the negative?s block.
The negative?s final speech focused on the criticism?s ability to turn and
solve for the affirmative.  With no external impacts to criticism extended
in the 2NR, the 2AR extended the permutation having the benefit of solving
for racist housing policies.

Michael ?the funny thing about my back isS? Luxembourg?s 2AR was good enough
for the W on a 17 ? 13 vote.


This is Angelo Theodosopoulos saying thank you and goodnight."

Kentucky Institute Director
