I never understood the three-part system and really despised it, but now I think it was just phrased poorly. If they had phrased it "Tell people what you'll argue, then argue with them, and in case they're too stupid to get the point after all that, tell it to them again," then it would have made sense.
Ah, OK. My bad. Must've read it too fast. Keep up the good work.
One more reason why we need to abolish government schools.
Hi to the Jerry Pournelle fan. I used to subscribe to (PC World? Byte? -- can't remember which) just to read his column. I never throw anything out, so I probably have the magazine in which he made his comment. I'll never be able to find it though. Makes you wonder why I saved it. (Don't tell my wife I said that.) I hope my grammar and punctuation is correct, not to mention my spelling. You all are a bunch of hard graders!
This is completely true. Help me. I need to escape.
James Y, you're an immensely silly person and I hope you feel shame. Buildings and football fields teach kids nothing. And no, children don't matter. No more than adults. The most important thing to buy in a school... is a proper teacher. Or a good trapper keeper... nothing comes in handy more often... (obligatory handjob joke)
