Well -- for the next six weeks, or so, Joe's Fight Club days are over. He broke his thumb -- split the metacarpal -- and is in a cast. On the one hand, this is very distressing to me, and on the other, I am grimly glad. Some serious pain is exactly what Joe needs, if he is to learn that fighting is not a good thing. And he has never lost a fight until now -- so has never had any serious pain. Well, and now he does.
