Right now I feel that “Tommy’s Army” stands like General Wellington waiting for the Hessians reinforcements to arrive at Waterloo. Except that when Wellington absolutely needed the Germans to arrive… they did.
So far, no one has arrived over that hill to relieve the strain. Soehn thought some of the dealing would be done by now. It’s not. More worrying in some way, is that the rumor mill seems to have gone totally silent.
DC is ripe for a long, long season destroying losing streak unless help arrives. We shall know in the coming days whether Tommy is Wellington, or Napoleon. Though, if there is a Napoleon-like figure in this narrative, it has to be Kevin Payne, doesn’t it?
