Public Debate in Seattle
Tomorrow (Friday) I will participate in a public debate at the University of Washington in Seattle. The official topic of the debate will be: "RESOLVED: The Seattle City Council's Monopolistic Policies are in the Public Interest." The actual focus of the debate will be a truly inane law (uh-oh, am I poisoning the well?) passed by the Seattle City Council that effectively gives two big firms a monopoly in construction waste hauling. Naturally, I'll be on the opposition side. Each side will consist of one student and one professional. I'll be partnered with Andrew Bailey, a Biola student, and our opponents will be Michael Howard, a UW student, and Rod McCarvel, a Seattle attorney.
Here are the details, if any readers happen to live in the area and feel like attending:
UW Seattle campus, Thompson Hall Room 101, Friday 1 August 2003, 6:00 - 7:00 pm.
A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
