Evidence philosophy:


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Resolution of substantive issues is more important than communication skills
I like stock LD debate, rather than the use of mechanisms to escape the resolution at hand. I would rather see a debate of standards than see a debate of plans, counter plans, off cases, etc. Speed reading is ok as long as its clear and arguments themselves are fully fleshed out.
