What would be your idea of a fabulous Dinner Party Debate experience? (Feel free to discuss specific details.)

For erudite discussion and to meet, socialize, and learn with interesting and contemplative people; I was a philosophy major and I teach history – I guess Socrates said it best: “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

What topics regarding morality and the law interest you the most?

free speech, atheism, humanism, situational ethics, existential dilemmas, morally grey areas, foreign policy, ethics of art, liberalism, socialism, socioeconomic ethics, taxes, crime & justice, ethics of popular sovereignty, minority rights, etc.

What are your favorite restaurants in the Orlando area?

On the top-quality and $pricey$ side: Amura, Texas De Brazil, Houston's, Seasons-52, Doc's, Hue, Tarantino's. As for standard cheapish chains: Mimi's Cafe, Carrabba's, Romano's Macaroni Grill, Pei Wei, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, New Punjab, etc.


Menschliches, Allzumenschliches: verbose, sardonic, dissenting, trenchant, cynical, intellectual, convivial, amiable, voluptuary, humanistic, Epicurean, skeptical, free-thinking, existentialistic, noetic: i.e. stimulating conversation would be great!
