Quin, some years ago, Pete Sampras was scheduled to meet Andre Agassi the the final of the Lipton tournament. Sampras got sick and could not take the court at the appointed time. Agassi insisted on waiting until Sampras felt good enough to play, though he was entitled to win through a forfeit. “I don’t want to win that way,” he said.
On the Giuliani issue, I point everyone to my column of several months back, “Giuliani Time” (here), in which I made the point that pro-life conservatives would probably ask themselves, “How much could this guy hurt me?” And the answer would be, “Not much,” especially if he pledges to appoint consructionist justices, and especially if George W. gets to make another pick for the SCOTUS.
