Edelman: Coach just told me I won't be able to go to London with you guys because of my arm.
Brady: Yeah, I heard. That's too bad. We'll definitely bring you back some souvenirs, though.
Brady thinks for a minute.
Brady: Well, the rules are the rules, but how about if I take you with me and Gi down to Brazil for Carnival?
Edelman thinks about this for a moment. His face quickly brightens.
Brady: Why not?
Edelman: Thanks, Tom! You're the greatest!
Actually this ends badly as Edelperson offers to accompany Gi while Brady is away in London.
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck." RAH
