Reg Reader Thomas Johnsen reports that he "downloaded the 3MB sound clip [of the Gibson/Greene debate] and listened to it all. For the benefit of all your readers I have made a transcript which you may put on your fine Web site. This way people with slow connections don't need to download the big file."
