Much better.

Fans who offer unsolicited advice to their team from the sidelines can rarely take the credit when it scores. (The cry allegedly heard at an all-in wrestling bout in England “Tear it off and hit him with the soggy end” is I hope apocryphal or at least ineffectual.) But note this: That Man has sustained an astonishingly high standard of lucidity and presence for 20 months of campaigning. He must by now be exhausted, and is well ahead with the winning post in sight. But even on a minor matter of technique, he’s still improving.
