Debating Society notes: “That every cloud has a silver lining.” Armchair Revolutionaries argued most clouds don’t have silver. That clouds don’t have linings at all. Backseat Drivers countered, it’s a glass-half-full thing. Metaphor! While there’s no gold at the rainbow’s end, this doesn’t mean it’s not true. ARs called this semantics. BDs broached science. If water can be called silver, then clouds are all silver lining and air. ARs accused BDs of being “all air”. Anyway, had they lined their pockets with the takings, thirty pieces of silver? BDs threatened to boycott August’s meeting if ARs’ personal attacks continued. Tie.
