                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRANSEL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  THE VOLS turned their 4-1-1 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  I can just hear all the boasts coming in MEDAL OF HONOR B6's next 
personal ads.  Their first turn they went 2-1-0.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FORLORN win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FORLORN 
beat GEN. JACKSON and GEN. JACKSON lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as JUGGERNAUT 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, JUGGERNAUT was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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

dehort (di-HORT) verb tr.

To discourage from doing something.

[From Latin dehortari (to dissuade), from de- + hortari (to urge).]

This well-meaning word has gone out of circulation while its antithesis "exhort"
continues to prosper.  It's about time to remedy the situation and bring this rather
usable word back to currency.

-- Anu Garg (words at wordsmith.org)

"To those of his Friends that dehort him from Poetry."  Thomas Randolph (1605-1635);
On the Inestimable Content He Enjoys in the Muses.
