This list will describe the topics I might be willing to debate. Might is the operative word. I reserve the right to not debate for any reason I chose, obviously, but, in particular, because of constraints on my time.

(This is the product of a lazy Sunday morning.)

1. Donald Trump's success has significantly changed the norms associated with Republican political primaries.

2. Too many people go to graduate school.

3. Cocaine should be legal.

4. The Republican Establishment has lost grip of its party.

I am also open to suggestions.

I hope number 4 is true. That would be a good thing.

I think it is, based on this, and the last primary.

I would very much like it if the GOP were to go belly-up. It would give rise to more respectable parties, like the Tea Party (if they were to every actually organize) or the Libertarian Party.

Is that really a debatable topic?

Yes. Many members of the Republican establishment would strongly disagree with the claim there.

I might debate three and I have some as well.

Affirmative action, con

Racial profiling, con

Death penalty, con

Draft kings is a game of skill, either way
