I saw an interesting article on the national news as the Kentucky basketball team was shooting for a perfect season. They talked about other streaks that were going on, and the last one mentioned was that the Boise State Debate Team had won its third straight national championship. Third straight national championship. Why wasn’t this even mentioned in the local news? Oh, that’s right, debate requires brains as opposed to football, which requires brawn. Congratulations to the Boise State Debate Team. I appreciate the work and dedication required to excel in this discipline. I just wish that the media would focus less on football and more on the other fantastic things that are happening here.
