Welcome to the Straight Dope Assizes, where the wise and learned Dopers do pass judgment on persons, places, ideas–nothing is sacred in the Assizes!
Today I charge you all to consider Randi Rhodes, the Air America Radio talk show host and former Army member.
The rules of the Straight Dope Assizes are not dissimilar to that pantheon of great debate, Thunderdome. Only instead of two men entering and one man leaving, there’s like… talking. And scones. (If you have scones at home.) You just study our subject in frightening detail. Or, if you prefer, pull something quite from out your arse–we’re not a judgmental group. But we have scones. I love scones!
At the end of your post, you simply record your vote. YEA or NAY. Let none question the judgment of the Assizes, under penalty of torture!
YEA or NAY?
