                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ALJAFIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, BODY OF 
MUSIC, but G.O.L.F. was just too good to be stopped.  What was the name of that team 
who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 38-42-4 you ask?  (Sure)  G.O.L.F.'s their name, 
and fighting's their game!  MVP award for WHITEY?  ENFORCERS' proud of him after 
beating GIDJIT HAYES and getting 25 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GIDJIT 
HAYES' match with WHITEY cost her a loss of 23 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think PING should let KHALHUMS DWARF 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.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Padre -- Yeah, southern New Mexico was good.  Big shopping in Las Cruces, rural
around Hatch, and a slow pace of life.  That changed when they started putting in the
spaceport, though.  I wouldn't mind going back, except that the good places are
getting too expensive.  If I move again, it will probably be to (shudder) Washington
state.  Family takes us to the strangest places! -- Jorja
P.S.  Cold enough, though not like here--at least, not when I was living there.  But
it got cold enough often enough to keep the saguaros out.  Now they have major
droughts, and the forest fires are not so good.  The year before we moved, I could
stand on my front porch and look at the Black Range, seventy miles away, and see the
actual flames of a fire in the Gila River basin leaping above the ridgeline.  Not a
comfortable sight, and it messed up the air we had to breathe, too.  Here, of course,
we have floods and tornadoes.  Nowhere is perfect, so we just have to like where we
are.  The people are good everywhere, if you don't get 'em in huge crowds.

One-four?  How... thrilling.  Maybe we should move to one of these places Jorja is
talking about.  *I* wouldn't mind farming.  Farmers can be impressive, what with
heaving those hay bales around and all. -- Gidjit Hayes, winner of the day
