Modern Debate

By Dave Dargo

O.K., what happened to debate in this country?

The second is what happened in the room after Mr. Kaleda's ejection:


I didn't really notice what Mr. Kaleda did other than express disapproval of the bill being debated.  However, we should all be concerned when elected officials stifle organized dialog.  It appears that Mr. Kaleda was invited to speak to the committee.

I guess he overstayed his welcome.  It's a far cry from Norman Rockwell's world portrayed here in "Freedom of Speech":
