We met over 50 years ago, and immediately got into an argument. He was a member of the White Station High School Debate Team. I was a member of the Frayser High School Debate Team. We squared off against one another in a speech tournament at old Messick High School, vigorously arguing an issue of American foreign policy.
I can’t recall who won. I am sure my friend thought he did. I thought I clearly won. We probably had an argument about that right after the debate.
