I think my use of "in the trenches" referred to the soldiers who were actually engaged in military actions, rather than those officers who sat back of the lines in safety and comfort. Maybe, it was a poor analogy. I did not mean "in the trenches" was being in a rut. Sorry, if there was confusion. --
