just ask in cross x what the cp does.  if it's obvious the other team has a
firm grip on it bc they read the text, and you don't bc it was read so fast,
ask for the text or ask the neg team to clarify what the cp does.

it's just clarification, a harmless act of judge intervention.  i have done
it several times when one team is reading a fifty plank cp.

the judge should be allowed to ask questions of clarification sometimes.  i
had judges ask me what the last argument i made on a particular flow was
before, etc


don't be such a fraidy cat
