Hey folks, Guess who's been invited by UC Berkeley to take the "pro" side of a debate on Stand-Your-Ground?

Haha, yep. Little ol' me. :)

Last time I debated a California academic on Stand-Your-Ground, on NPR, he lost the power of speech halfway through.

Well, maybe they'll have better luck this time.

Debate is the evening of April 17, 5-8PM, on the Berkeley campus.  Other details--such as who will be on the "con" side of the debate, and whether the debate will be open to the public, are not yet known to be.  As soon as they share those details with me, I'll share them with you.

This ought to be great fun!
