However, the Rossi skeptics have far more to swallow once it is proven there is some truth in what the Italian Fox says, than in a negative situation.
I don't worry about that, not even a tiny bit. You OTOH have given some thought to your escape hatch?
So if Rossi is vindicated, you have no qualms about having repeatedly slandered the man. Surely that says something, psychologically and culturally.
If Rossi's work is all an elaborate con, there is no need to escape through some hatch for us Rossi believers. We'll take it on the chin, like men.
