1. What does this past Kansas debater look like now?
That's him to the left.
2. What does this ex-debater now do for a living?
Paul is a Professor of Political Science at the University of Kansas.
3. Has this former debater been "in the news"?
Sort of. USA Today (Society for the Advancement of Education) had an article in November 2004 about Paul's new book...but he apparently told them that he teaches at K-State:
The amount of friendly disagreements about politics is keeping democracy strong in the U.S., concludes a book co-authored by political scientist Paul Johnson of the University of Kansas, Manhattan.In Kansas, of course, Paul is considered a "reliable source."
4. What else do we know?
Paul is still a party animal. Check out the title of this journal, which published his recent article on "The Power of Commitment in Cooperative Social Action," Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation.
Sounds just like one of his old parties.
