Today is the seven-year anniversary of this blog. I used to hate calling it a blog. But that's what it is. As far as I can tell–and you can correct me if I'm wrong–there are not a lot of blogs like this. That is, there are not blogs that have argument per se as their sole subject matter. I wonder if this is because for the most part people think they are just fine at argumentation. My sense was, when we started this, was that they are not in fact very good at it. That's pretty much how I feel today. Sad, this is, because with a little effort we could have something closer to the public discourse our country ought to think it deserves.
