Alexander’s First Debate

These are my flows along with Alexander’s of our practice debate round tonight.

Alex has his first debate tournament next weekend in Moore. He hasn’t had a real practice round in class yet, but hopes to do one this week. Tonight he debated his AFF case and I was NEG. The resolution is: RESOLVED – The abuse of illegal drugs ought to be treated as a matter of public health, not criminal justice.

Alex did really well, I hope he is well prepared for this weekend’s tournament. Last year when he took intro to debate I was dismayed he never actually got to debate in class or at a tournament, they just learned how to debate by watching and talking about it. They also wrote cases.

I hope Alexander has a good experience in debate. He has done really well in class. I’ll be eager to hear how things go this weekend at the tourney. I’ll be judging there for Classen.

Impressive Horse Sculptures

It was a treat to see this amazing sculpture exhibit of mustangs today in Las Colinas, Texas.

Mustang Sculpture at Carpenter Square in Las Colinas, Texas

There is a similar sculpture in Oklahoma City down on the river near Bricktown. These are photos I took this summer on the river boat ride.

I’m not sure if the same artist is responsible for both, but they are both VERY impressive sculptures!
