                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
BONSUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  JOHN BROWN turned their 1-1-0 turn 
into a 6th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see OMA BRELLA win a 
fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SURFIN' SARA beat CREAMED MALCORN and 
CREAMED MALCORN lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as FROGLE ROCK takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for BONSUR's 
morgue.  More variety.  Whoa!  I'll even buy CANNED SAVRADESE a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good side!  Honor 
is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the BONSUR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Two-three, which is an improvement, much though it galls me to say that.  With the
wins being Wavin' Wanda over a Football person (and it was NOT luck, it was a
superior tan) and (sigh) Charlie over a standby.  Ah, well.  We take what we get and
either celebrate or console ourselves with smash. -- Surfin' Sara
