Watch your back — because you're playing for keeps.

But there's good reason for it, and you'll be revealing a truth that's more than just inconvenient — it's damning. People won't like having to acknowledge this, but it's better to be vilified for telling it like it is than to be blamed for not preventing a disaster.
