The WSU Ethics Bowl team (“The Kantsequentialists”) competed at The Northwest Regional Ethics Bowl Tournament this past Saturday, November 10. This year it was held at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. The event was a great success in every respect except, well, winning. We did not win this year.

On Sunday, we had an excellent brunch where several parents came to join us, and the rest was all tranquility.
