Yes! Stand up on principle! When people claim to be noble and honorable and segregate their audience, that means only hypocrisy to me. Let's see more of this ... and do more of this.

That's about what I expected, Pat.  These schmucks who want to say they value and protect women are talking out of their hats.  It looks as though Krauss gave 'em a choice either to live up to their promises or look like the two-faced fools they are.

As many of the commenters on the Examiner site have already said, Krauss had that debate one before the first word was spoken!

Quick update. Turns out the debate was held after all.

In the words of Professor Krauss,

“Almost walked out of IERA debate as it ended up segregated (single men and women not allowed to sit together). I had been promised that would not be the case, and then saw 3 really nice kids being ejected for sitting in wrong place. I packed up my bags and walked out. They caved in, and let the kids back, not without complaints of course from some of the attendees.” 

My admiration is still up there! Way to go, Professor!

My already existing admiration for him just spiked to a new high!

A man of principle (like we had to guess!).  BRAVO, Lawrence!  Me 'at's off to you!
