    Put them in the sticky situation (or hope that they put themselves there) and then get them out for a price - that price is your goal.  That's how the real world works.  This isn't professional wrestling and nobody's going to body slam anyone else.

    We have too much to do after this, we can't start this term off with a cage match.  Oftentimes, the quiet, face-saving win is the best win of all - the opponent may not even realize just how much he's lost.

    "The first drawback of anger is that it destroys your inner peace; the second is that it distorts your view of reality. If you come to understand that anger is really unhelpful, you can begin to distance yourself from anger." - The Dalai Lama
