                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at DREAMERS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of 
the top spot by BLUE NOTE.  Good show!  SWEET MAGIC posted a nice gain, to come in 
3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for NELLI POLITANA, who pummelled 
FRED THE UNREADY, to pocket 8 points.  DIZZY GILLESPIE successfully staved off a grab 
for the roses by PROCLUS of DREAMERS.  Does RIZTAB have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  Word has it one team in RIZTAB is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in RIZTAB is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
