Memos to Nick Ramsey

Recommended Posts

So my boy Bryan is in town from DC, where he works as an economist for the BLS. As always we went to say hello to our friend Ann Fuhrman, the UN Document Specialist at Meyer Library. Through an odd track of conversations which involved kittens, lesbians, beer, and horses, we started to talk about model un. Ann brought up how you used to go to MAMUN, and how you're about to attend U Chicago.

 

Bryan has some advice for you. You have to become an econ major. There isn't a option, this is something you have to do. Graduate from U Chicago with a degree in econ, and you'll be the envy of all of your friends.

 

Bryan probably doesn't want me to add this, but I will, because it couldn't hurt. If you move out to DC, people (women) will ask you where you are from. You can answer Missouri, but people will assume St. Louis or KC. So just say SW Missouri. Then they will ask you where you work. If you wish to continue talking to these women, say something cooler than the BLS.

Why aren't you debating in college??? Your badass skillz should not go to waste...Well, if we here in the MO forum cannot influence you to continue debating, will you at least still be involved in the event be it leading labs at camp or assistant coaching?

 

BTW you prolly dont remember me, i went to MSDI and i had you as a judge a few times, let me say that i always looked forward to your comments at the end of the round and i probably improved the most as a result of your critiques...Thank you and i am very disappointed that your debate career is potentially over...

Ruben, I'm double majoring econ and philosophy.

 

Shaiken, UChicago doesn't have policy. I would have debated at Berkeley, but my parents wouldn't let me go there. I'll be coaching a UDL school in Chicago, instead.

 

You guys are silly. :)

Notice the results page was last updated in 2003.

They stopped their program. :P

 

ooookkkk then all in favor of nick ramsey re-banding the policy team by getting a group of students to join a policy club and then raising the necessary funds to become recognized as a member of CEDA and/or the NDT, then getting the school to establish funding for the newfound team on a probationary 1 year trial and have his team travel to and close out every tournament and then recieve full funding forever and bring back the policy team at uchicago and then update the website...say I...or something else expressing agreement...

No. Nick, debate is dumb and won't possibly provide you a better life than getting your degree in econ at Chicago. My friend says you're going to be money.

Why can't he be money and re-band policy debate at UChi...wont that make him more money???

:confused:

 

 

You know what...W.E, Nick, Reband policy and i will father your children...Period

:Bow

 

jk but seriously, what bad stuff will possibly come from you raising what like 140 dollars, getting a few people who share the love for policy that you obviously do, teaching those who maybe aren't as well versed, and going to a few tournaments???

 

What else are you going to do on weekends?

 

***YOU CAN SKIP THIS PART IF YOU WANT, I AM GOING TO GO RESOLVED IN MY SPEECH***

 

Nick, you say you would've gone to berkley to debate...I respect that you are not able to go, but that doesn't mean the career has to end. If people gave up on the things that they loved because there were obstacles, where would we be today? Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Susan B. Anthony, Rosa Parks, and every one else who stood up for change, who fought for that they believed in, What would be made of them? nothing. You obviously carry with you a burning passion for policy that i have seen in few other people. You put up with my (probably) incredibly boring and nonsensical rounds at MSDI for what, to continue the legacy of policy and to help us get better at it. Why does your career have to stop because of an obstacle? People are so afraid to change. To break from tradition. This fear causes us to lose what makes us, us. I see an amazing debater. I see someone who has so much talent and so much passion for the activity. I also see now that you too are a victim of conformity. Nick, this is my dare to you. Re-band policy debate at uchicago.

Shaiken, I think you're being a little overdramatic there, but I do agree with you. Nick, if you don't reband the policy team at U Chicago, oh well, but you definitely should at least teach/judge policy at camps (I recomend MSDI since you were a great judge last year, and I want you as a judge again next year) but if you do reband policy at U Chicago, that would be awesome. Everyone from Missouri will be cheering you on.
