Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Before we can determine how remarkable this is, we need more information.

How many of the prisoners' team graduated from Harvard?

Or Yale?

Why a debate, rather than baseball?

"Three members of the HCDU had the privilege of competing against members of the Bard Prison Initiative's debate program," the group posted on its Facebook page. "There are few teams we are prouder of having lost a debate to than the phenomenally intelligent and articulate team we faced this weekend, and we are incredibly thankful to Bard and the Eastern New York Correctional Facility for the work they do and for organizing this event."

Fantastic statement. Congratulations above all to the Bard Prison Initiative!

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

This seems about right given we pay almost as much to house and educate a prisoner as parents do in sending their kid to Harvard.

Two people on this board remember a classic Victor Borge routine! Well done chaps! One of my favorites. "Are you two? I'm two three!" Oh wait, three people. I'm a person as well.
