[1] A straw man argument is a misrepresentation of an opponent’s position through an unfair comparison. Example: “After Will said that we should put more money into health and education, Warren responded by saying that he was surprised that Will hates our country so much that he wants to leave it defenseless by cutting military spending.”

One comment on “Psi Wars, 2nd Edition, supplemental materials for print edition

    Hi Craig – You dropped off my radar so long ago. I’m still out the $40,000 I spent making our program happen and on legal fees to discover how the little guy couldn’t win legally without spending a non-reimbursable fortune against big bad TED. Whoever there’s anything that in a fair world would be a impetus for honcho Chris to reconsider his abusive treatment, it goes into a black hole.

    Did you become standup comedian? Or what?
