                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SEA DOGS?  Who?  MINDSOVERMATTER is the top team these days, buddies!  
Practice pays for MONTESQUIEU, who pummelled PORTAR SHAW, to pocket 26 points.  M. 
CHARDINEE found out that JHANS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in JHANS is using psychics to predict wins.  
They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BABES, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of BABES found their efforts at combat frustrated as MINDSOVERMATTER 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
The warriors at MIDDLE WAY 13 stable were more sober than usual, after PORTAR SHAW's 
demise at the hands of MONTESQUIEU.  MONTESQUIEU, don't make any long term plans!  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
JHANS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

afflatus \uh-FLAY-tuhs\, noun:
A divine imparting of knowledge; inspiration.

Afflatus is from Latin afflatus, past participle of afflare, "to blow at or breathe
on," from ad-, "at" + flare, "to puff, to blow." Other words with the same root
include deflate (de-, "out of" + flare); inflate (in-, "into" + flare); souffle, the
"puffed up" dish (from French souffler, "to puff," from Latin sufflare, "to blow from
below," hence "to blow up, to puff up," from sub-, "below" + flare); and flatulent.
