                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RIZTAB brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, BLUE NOTE, since DREAMERS 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see NELLI POLITANA win a fight and gain 26 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, NELLI POLITANA beat ELEVENTH and ELEVENTH lost 22 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as 
HERMIAS stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, RIZTAB?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Let's see, 16-10-0.  Pretty good record for a living 
warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for HERBIE HANCOCK of 
BLUE NOTE.  Tsk.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  TERESIANNA, a glorious 9-17-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad SWEET MAGIC.  We're all going to die in the 
end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in RIZTAB to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
