And to me, linear is what tells the story ... haha. I told Dad, a few years before his passing, that I had read about a greatly paid baseball player, walking away from it all to join the navy at the start of WW2. "Yes, Bob Feller. Our ship played baseball with him, once." "Wow, how did that happen?" "Our shipmen and his shipmen had a baseball game." "Who won?" With a classic Dad look at me over his glasses, "Who do you think?"
