I used to stand around and pipe off the boss while he shucked the mail, and I could tell whether it was fat or lean by the time it took him to eat lunch.
The old Confederate's first impulse had been to run an extra immediately, but he was argued out of it. "We don't want to go off half cocked. We've got a beautiful comeback if we play it right.
