                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DULLENS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ARROGANT BASTARD win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, GRIM LAUGHTER beat NIMBLE DANCER and NIMBLE DANCER lost 5 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DULLENS may be getting 
bland, as FLOYD CASTAWAY stays top dog in the city.  The Sleepy Smithy, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DULLENS' trash 
dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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
