1. The press is not your friend. They never will be. Don't try to make friends with them.
2. Grow a spine and vote on principles instead of polling data.

As a former college pitcher I can tell you that the best solution here is for a pitcher to tell his manager the truth.
I've never been in a no hitter situation but I've had the manager ask me how my arm feels. If I said "Fine" he let me go another inning. If I said "Elbow is starting to feel a ...

It already exists in the US. If you don't work at all you can get welfare benefits that = $10 to $15 an hour based on a 40 hour work week. It varies with your location, dependent kids, disabilities and how good you are at working the system.

That stuff exists on a lot of campuses.
