Well, I'll agree that it's slow, and I haven't really been reading it
lately (having paused around page 441 to reread The Warrior's
Apprentice...and The Vor Game...and...), but I do think the whole thing is

a fly ball, a woman will automatically choose to save the
infant, without even considering if there's a man on base.
