    A few more thoughts on the so-called debate at Ferris last fall.
      Devoted fans are rallying to Walther. Some praise her and Ferris for putting on the âeuro;œdebateâeuro;� âeuro;” politically tainted questions notwithstanding. One wrote: âeuro;œIf Democrats wanted to play ball, they could have organized their own debate with their own questions.
