Sean Maher's Quality Control

Oh, and also,

--before I take this back to the library, wanted to share an excerpt that struck me.

Writing of Heavyweight World Champion Floyd Patterson, the good Mr. A.J. Liebling put it:

His long, dark face, with a long, straight nose turned up at the end, was diffident -- half-humorously apologetic, as always. The expression befits the artist whose accomplishments have never measured up to his own opinion of his abilities. (This includes all artists worth a damn.) "I have never been more than seventy percent of myself," he once said. "My ambition is to be a hundred percent."
