'Long quest (regardless of real or expected outcome)':


"Things take a hard turn for the histrionic as soon as Scott hits the road
on his wild goose chase, as the government middleman systemically visits an
endless parade of two-dimensional archetypes who are willing to speak to
Pitsenbarger’s heroism."

As this reviewer of "The Last Full Measure" knew,  the "chase" is both
meaningful and productive.


"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
