From The Floor

The mixed bag of speakers from the floor contributed a confusion of ideas, concentrating first on moron. Peter Hogg contended that morons were produced biologically—not through development. O'Brien had something profound to say, "Some morons conform some don't."

Voice A: What is this debate on?

Voice B: The rocks, well and truly!

And so it was. —J.W.B.
