First off, here’s a quick tip for those STILL looking to find a case. Try this search string in Google: “u.s. should * russia”
Maybe limit to filetype:pdf or filetype:ppt, but no matter what you do you will find people recommending action with Russia. Some of it will be outdated, but it could be a launching board for a new case idea.
Second, Ethos will host a 1AC-writing contest in a couple weeks. More details later this week, but consider preparing now. Prizes will include Ethos t-shirt, recognition, and free tuition (for yourself or as a gift) at a Summer 2011 Ethos Camp. We are currently planning camps in 7 states and will likely have one near you.
