I don't mean to brag, but 50 years ago, I was a pretty good debater. I was a member of the Tennessee High School State Championship team in 1969, and even a National Championship team at the University of Tennessee in 1971. As the old cowboy on TV used to say, "No brag, just fact."
I had two heroes that to my knowledge never rode a horse or shot an outlaw. And instead of carrying bats, they toted briefcases.
