i'm james.
I debated at MorganPark HS in Chicago from 99/2000 - 2002/2003. Ive worked at a few debate camps and have coached a few teams in the chicago UDL and a few teams in Colorad mainly Rocky Mountain HS in Fort Collins. I havent judeged any rounds on this topic (Africa) but have judged numerous rounds since 2001. I fell off the map to a hippie commune in colorado for a few years, but now i'm back and ready to flow. here are some things you should know about me:

1) the con-con is always legit;
2) politics should always be a net-benefit;
3) don't hate on mormons;
4) i've been known to enjoy speed.... err, i can flow fast debates;
5) if you can dream it, you can do it;
6) don't believe what you may have read about me in the book "cross-x"! support your local udl 7) have fun, (i love good jokes) your debate career will be over before you know it.
I vote on all good arguments just explain them and we should have no problem. If you have any questions ask me in round
