Debate gratia debatis
Law school has ruined me, or else I am the sick kind of person who just enjoys debate for the sake of debate, because I really enjoyed this roundtable discussion hosted by the New York Times in its wonderful "Room for Debate" section. It's about the emotionally and morally fraught issue of pornography, and it does a fantastic job of presenting a wide variety of perspectives. If you have 15-20 minutes, I'd recommend reading through them. Any that represent your view on the subject particularly well? I think the last essay is probably closest to my take--of course, it's also the most "well, it depends" one, a typical law school answer.
