Yeah, lay on thick, Mark, if you want to hook this group and pull it into your assignment. “It was too close to call”, huh? Maybe, if you were an octogenarian angler in a rowboat, perhaps. Anyway, I don’t think it was the case of the cargo crew spotting you underwater, Mark, since they could not have missed the two boats floating alongside their ship!
In any event, we can count on Cliff’s vocal support for Mark’s testimony to gain the approval and participation of the squad. Unless they do not participate, in which case I have to wonder what their purpose is to the story: Friends or foes.
