Make your question short, succinct, direct. Make sure it is a relevant question. We give instructions to the audience every time we have audience questions with an open microphone. Thankfully, we have pretty well stopped doing that (we ask for written questions now), but when folks insist upon having that format, it is always interesting.
   Nowhere was this more true than in the audience questions after the debate with Hamza Abdul Malik on Long Island in 1999. And this man’s question surely set the record for the longest, most dis-jointed, and basically irrelevant question of all my debates. It is humorous, at the very least, but a good example of why audience questions really have little place in scholarly debate.
