DETROIT — Vice-President Joe Biden is a known Corvette fan.

So it makes sense that he would want to check out the Greatest Corvette in Human History — the Corvette Grand Sport.

“You left,” Sidney says around a gasp. “You left the camp and I didn’t… I thought you died.”

Geno shakes his head. He’s leaning heavily on a cane - hasn’t been able to get over the final wound of his military career - and watching Sidney with careful eyes. Sidney has always been shorter than him, but Geno finds himself at a height disadvantage since he’s on the porch steps. Sidney looks down at him with hurt-filled eyes.
