The 98th-Floor Bush Jacket
Fully aware that yesterday's dust-up was of his own making, he wasn't looking forward to today's ambush.

"Good morning.” He sprang into the room. Pounced, more like. The circle of navy-suited hyenas startled. All heads swiveled.

A surprise attack, here or in the bush, is always the best shot to take.
