Hello from Lima, Peru, where I am sitting in the airport.

I, and my school, stopped sponsoring this list because my chair advised 
me (as did my dean) that based on the iresponsible and childish postings 
that existed that the University of Vermont would be better off not 
being involved with it. Would your university want to sponsor the kind 
of stuff you have seen here in the last six months?

I agreed, Phil took it on, and I support his efforts, both personaly and 

I do sponsor our Northeast debate lisrtserv and a UDL listserv. Still.

In my opinion, policy debate is not the whole of CEDA. CEDA is a subset.
