Hey, *I* was a high school debating coach...

One of the winners of the current round of MacArthur "Genius" Grants is a high school debate coach. So was GE Pal Sherman, and he would beat me out.

Tommie Lindsey, an exemplary teacher of competitive forensics (the discipline of public speaking, presentation, and debate), is changing the landscape of opportunities for at-risk students. In his program at Logan High School in Union City, California, Lindsey instills in his students the importance and power of persuasion, based on clear communication, reasoning, and mastery of the facts.
