This battle was a fine finish to our first month of Iron Blog. Two strong writers and scholars debated a very broad and intricate issue, drawing from personal experience as well as clinical data. I am pleased to have hosted this discussion, and thank both men for a stirring, thought-provoking debate.
And now, the Verdict.
Three battles down, three Iron Blogger victories. Iron Blogger Libertarian Vinod Valloppillil carrying the great weight of expectations on his shoulders and battling a well-known and widely-read Challenger as well. Did he have enough to make it 4-0 for the Chairman's Iron Bloggers? Was the powerful writing style of Challenger Dean Esmay just too much to overcome?
Whose spleen vents supreme?
