On Parliamentary Procedure

Kudos to Lois Fitzpatrick for a fascinating introduction to parliamentary procedures. I had no idea there was even such a thing as "Robert's Rules" before this talk. According to Lois, one of the main goals of this protocol is to preserve the rights of the minority positions in the debate. Very interesting. Here's a few links if anyone's interested:
