Yes, because a messenger by definition has had to turn his back on the battle, 
and no Spartan could be allowed to run from a defeat and live.  Quite

The Galileo Syndrome seems to have struck again: ``Galieo was persecuted, and 
Galieo was right.  I am persecuted, therefore I am right'' :-).  I wonder if 
his model suffers from the same problem that he does? ....
