I once used the term “Pyrrhic victory” in a presentation when I was in graduate school and someone stopped me to ask what it meant. I struggled to recount the tale of Pyrrhus’ assaults on Italy and Sicily and his supposedly saying “Another such victory and I shall be ruined,” but I fell short and had to settle for a dull dictionary style definition. Well, if there is anyone out there who is still confused, this man’s acquittal will definitely be a Pyrrhic victory.
