                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JHANS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for DRONE D5? 
TOLBINS HIVE D's proud of him after beating JONSON ORLES and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  JONSON ORLES' match with DRONE D5 cost him a loss of 16 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think ONE MIC should let 
M. CHARDINEE 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.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  SERPENTS HOLD 
was JHANS' most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are DEVIATION?  SERPENTS HOLD, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is ORVAL PAYNE popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of JHANS!  He's got a 11-35-1, is that good?  Some fights 
are really unfair.  How do you think DALLAS HILLARY feels about being challenged by 
FEELING MINNESOTA, 20 points above her?  Is this how DEVIATION advances, by having 
their members (FEELING MINNESOTA) fight people that are really below them (DALLAS 
HILLARY)?   
     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.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Even worse!  One-four, the only win being mine, over a Cult Member.  It's
embarrassing.  Of course, belonging to a silly cult would be embarrassing, also,
which allows me to realize that I may have done the fellow a favor.  He may rethink
his participation in the cult and withdraw, which could be nothing but good for his
soul. -- Ithaca Novum

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
