                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  MORYA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, PLANETS, but 
LORD OF DISCIPLINE was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for EYE BAGS?  BASH 
BROS BODY's proud of him after beating WATER RAT and getting 9 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  PREPAID EXPENSE got smashed by BIG GUT, and lost 5 points!  
What a putz!  MERCURY fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses 
the title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in EYE BAGS' eye, 
as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't WATER RAT fit to be tied!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said MORYA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Salty's Chowder House?  
Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  DODGE BULLETS was MORYA's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what LORD OF DISCIPLINE's 
been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from DODGE BULLETS, 
that's fer sher.  Can DODGE BULLETS' MARY MEI be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Mercury -- Another win over us Expense Accounts for your guild.  Well done, you
Meanie!  Did it have to be me?  You fought the best and deserved the Title.  Salute.
-- Travel

Mercury -- Thanks for the mention in your DM Column.  I am pleased to see the Zodiacs
blossom.  Soon all space will be yours.  Kudos. -- Finance Manager

Uranus -- Nice try, but I guess I had more interest in winning than you did! --
Accrued Interest

Slinger -- Consider yourself slung. -- Prepaid Interest

A salute to a repeat Duelmaster who writes a fine DM Column.  Keep up the great work,
Mercury. -- Finance Manager

As the DJI is plunging and perhaps correcting 10 per cent or more, perhaps this is
the time to invest, rather than punt?  Perhaps. -- Finance Manager

Pluto -- ...?  ...?  ...! ... -- Mongo Crush

He said, "Really?  Again?  Too bad the Arena Master stepped in.  I would have beaten
you!  Then again, the guy standing around doing nothing shouldn't get tired before
the guy jumping around and doing a lot of swinging." -- Psycho Dad

Venus -- Believe it or not, that is exactly how we expected that fight to go. --
Psycho Dad

Uranus -- Yes.  Psyche's record is not that impressive.  He is part of that group
from 20 years ago that had high wits and will, but can't learn skills to save their
lives.  Also, most of his losses are because your team keeps challenging him.  He was
7-2-0 at one point.  So, you are correct; his record doesn't give him the right to
have an air of superiority.  But then again, your challenge history says you can't
say much about your skill either. -- Longshot
P.S.  He wasn't acting superior.
P.S.S  Your team doesn't want to wake the sleeping dragon.

Convicted Assassin -- Wow.  I was expecting your style to walk all over me.  I
mean....  Wow.  That battle axe looked so wicked too. -- Water Rat

Venus -- Jorja says "Hello" back.  And it's a name, not a demand.  Most of the
available "husband material" isn't worth the hassle. -- Mary Mei (pronounced "may")

Water Rat -- If they were reaching for YOUR warm meal, and hanging out in YOUR safe
place, you might be harsh, too. -- Slinger

Longshot -- I've never noticed that the weather listens.  But we're expecting more
snow as this newsletter goes to print....  I will be SO glad when we get past Last
Frost and into flood season. -- Jorja 

Two-three.  Huh.

Jupiter -- Now you've got a Big Red Spot. -- Lucky Looie

Koroshiya Ichi -- I think I need calamine lotion, you left me ichi all over. -- Pop
Target

Electric Boogaloo -- Sounds like a musical bug-zapper, doesn't it? -- Mary Mei

Well, I rained on HIS parade. -- Storm Warning

Prepaid Expense -- Right, except for the other expenses that get tacked on at the 
end.... -- Slinger
