“The law is simply whatever is boldly asserted and plausibly maintained” – from “Burr, A Novel,” p.136 by Gore Vidal

The consensus seems to be that it is an actual Burr quote.

Rhee Cancels Debate at Lehigh University

Diane Ravitch's blog

I earlier posted that Michelle Rhee and I would debate at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania on February 6.

As you may recall, Rhee first demanded that we have two people on each team, then three people on each team.

I readily assented and selected a wonderful second and third for the debate.

Early on, Rhee said her second would be Rod Paige.

My choices were the Finnish educator Pasi Sahlberg (a visiting scholar at Harvard this year) and Philadelphia parent activist Helen Gym.

Rhee and I–through our agents– mutually agreed on the date.

However, the debate is off because Rhee says she cannot find a third partner.

This is the information I received from Lehigh.

I don’t know anything more, except that this debate will not happen.

I am very disappointed.

I was looking forward to it.

I think it would have been informative for all involved.
