It could also work to give him confidence with each strike he throws that lands, and each one he eats that doesn't put him out.
I still don't think he'll win, but I like the fact that he's going in...
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
