We're sure you've been waiting with bated breath for the results of last night's Bitch "Pop Culture Debate Club" at Portland's famed In Other Words bookstore. We got a great turnout for the event, probably because the topic — "Britney: Who's to Blame?" tends to be one on which people we know have plenty of opinions. The gals from local discussion group Feminist Club put forth debater Renee Honn to argue the "It's Society's Fault" side. Our own Briar Levit battled her blocked sinuses to deliver an impassioned "She Should Be Taking Responsibility, Already" point of view. Both sides were well-researched and -reasoned, but Briar pulled an unexpected trump card in the form of former president Abe Lincoln and his own well-concealed battles with depression.
