                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A good try, I suppose, Stewie, but you are hopelessly out of date.  As is the
whole town of Zuwayza, of course.  But perhaps now we can reach for something more up
to date.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUWAYZA games.  Former top team THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 
was unseated this week as CUNNING RUNTS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-0-0 record for the round.  ROD caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MORDANT DESERTER and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DR. RUTH put down 
GAMMA, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of ERIC CARTMAN, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim 
to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZUWAYZA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DR. RUTH.  Watch your 
back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Eric Cartman -- Surely you aren't going to keep that ancient chariot hubcap for
yourself?  You aren't into collecting hubcaps.  No, seriously, to you it is merely

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
