    A reasoned debate! What a concept.

    Thanks Chris.

    Great stuff! Sorry I was not previously aware of this program. Please be sure to send out reminders for the rest of the debates.
    It is certainly critical that the participants do not reflect overtly political influences. This program seems to be at least one way to help offset the demise of “objective journalism”, which has become an oxymoron.

    I’m not sure I followed all the technical details, but I certainly feel far better prepared to discuss this and the underlying issues with my children and grandchildren. Thanks to I-square. How about other Y 62?
