                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JHELUM needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for CRIME 
AND PUNISHMENT?  TL;DR's proud of her after beating CUSSTER and getting 8 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  CUSSTER got smashed by CRIME AND PUNISHMENT, and 
lost 7 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think WHEEL OF 
TIME should let MAT'ARI be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of TL;DR must be getting lonely.  They were the most 
avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark 
secret why SHEWISH BUFFET's been avoiding TL;DR so much?  Or is it just that they're 
too scared?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JHELUM ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
