He's always been known to be a bold leader, particularly during The War, and his men followed him without reservation! I'm sure that a few of my old colleagues at the Tribune could provide you with more details."taitzu52 said:"Tell me. Have you covered any of Mr. Starkweather's previous exploits before?" he asks the venerable newspaper man, of course, hoping for a story.
Mrs. Broughton grimaces at this comment and says "Hmpf! You've certainly stated the truth, Mr. Poole! That man will surely need the best! And your record may be at risk!" She then stops herself, looks down at the floor for a moment, then returns her gaze to Jim and says "I'm sorry, that was very rude of me and I apologize. I hardly know the man, but he is one of the most arrogant, boorish...", and she stops herself again and simply smiles, attempting to bite her tongue in half.taitzu52 said:"I simply feel that if a mission like this is to be successful, Mr. Starkweather's going to need the best. And I've never lost a crewman." he says.
