Columnist Assignment

Remember the goal here:  I want you to HEAR the language of intelligent discourse.  I want you to read well-scaffolded argument — argument that’s back by solid, real evidence rather than opinion.

I want you to be able to say honestly, “I can see the reasoning, even if I disagree.”  And I want your disagreement to be grounded in solid, real evidence as well.
