When Less Is More (Don't Give Us Your Tired, Poor, Or Huddled Masses)
American Rattlesnake ^ | May 7th, 2011 | Gerard Perry

This past tuesday I had the distinct pleasure of attending an Intelligence Squared debate whose subject is one that this website has addressed repeatedly in the past, although admittedly, not as often as I would have liked.

Thanks for posting this. I’m going to make time to watch the entire video of the debate this weekend. This article generously provided a link to it.

Thanks again.

My pleasure.

I was disappointed I didn't get to question the San Antonio mayor, who was much slicker and better at presenting his case than Jacoby, who's a complete joke, even by the low standards of the amnesty crowd.

The debate itself is airing right now on Bloomberg TV, although it'll probably be rerun a million times on the same channel throughout the week.

I had a few good sound bites at both the beginning and conclusion of the debate.
