As we have now seen each of my Iron Bloggers once, I find myself looking anxiously to this next battle. The Challenger shares many things in common ideologically with the Iron Blogger he has picked to Challenge. Many things, indeed...
Except for one issue.
When Big Dan of God In The Machine
approached me with his unusual request, I admit I was rather intrigued by the idea, and so I granted his wish.
Iron Blogger Republican, Rosemary Esmay, you have been Challenged to the battlefield. May you once again stand strong and claim another victory for my Iron Bloggers.
If memory serves me right, I usually pick the Theme Topic myself, carefully weighing each combatant's strengths and current events to choose a Topic that is both interesting and timely. This week, I am setting that rule aside and allowing Big Dan to battle my Iron Blogger on the issue he requested, the one major point they disagree. The Topic for the battle is this:
Fair and just, or cruel and unusual? Can the inherent flaws of man and his court judiciously deliver this ultimate sentence? With the coldest of killers, is there nothing more deserved? Let's see what our combatants have to say.
