                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Goodness!  Goodness!  I am so sorry that Dirty Coal is dead at my hands.  I
didn't mean to end his life in the arena.  I didn't!  Sometimes I do not know my own
strength.  And now I wonder if he was yelling stop, and I didn't hear?  I can only
apologize, but that will not bring Dirty Coal back for Captain Planet.  Mea culpa.
Mea culpa.  Mea Maxima culpa.
     I am a little too sad to write much else.  To ease the pain I watched the Oscars
last night and was quite pleased to see The King's Speech win so many big awards.
Other than the mandatory Harry Potter #6, that was the one and only movie I saw all
last year, and I can only say it was BRILLIANT!
     With that I close.  I am here.  You can challenge if you wish.  Beware, I seem
to kill without trying.  Good luck to you.
          Hearing Aid DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZENSU, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, I SAY NO was 
winsome, after beating LORIS DEANE and seeing her lose 14 points.  HEARING AID 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by CORBETT JOSYE of BEYOND THE PALE.  
Does ZENSU have no one talented enough to dethrone it?  Word has it one team in ZENSU 
is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of CAPTAIN PLANET, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, OLDER BY FAR scurried away from CAPTAIN PLANET. 
Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and EARTH is it right now.  
Most challenged warrior.  Isn't CAPTAIN PLANET proud!  EARTH found himself challenged 
by a warrior 20 below:  WHEEL CHAIR.  WHEEL CHAIR of OLDER BY FAR kept its wits as it 
bested EARTH.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  You've heard 
about CORBETT JOSYE of BEYOND THE PALE.  Death plays no favorites, and neither do I.  
What was a 16-15-1 doing on the fields in the first place?  Fair play must not be a 
credo of OLDER BY FAR, as HEARING AID permanently removed CORBETT JOSYE of BEYOND THE 
PALE from the competition in a mismatched fight.  Questions are being raised about 
the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ZENSU would I 
avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid ZENSU farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Marlin Kole -- It was a pleasure hangin' with you for a while.  I wish you had been
able to take it for a longer period. -- Got The Runs

That One Monkey -- I kept saying NO, but you wouldn't stop.  I feel as though I was
ravished against my will, you ape! -- I Say No

Linaea Deane -- It was okay when you tried to push me around a little, but when you
decided to sit on me, I decided I had enough! -- Wheel Chair

Corbett Josye -- You were my first, not that I wanted a first.  I am glad, however,
that it was with a very experienced teacher. -- Rocking Chair

Captain Planet -- I must apologize for Hearing Aid.  Us Older By Far folks have no
desire to kill, nor is it enjoyed.  I am sorry to see that Dirty Coal left before I
did.  May he fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Methuselah, Older By Far

Wow, Dirty Coal bites the dust!  Do you suppose it was coal dust? -- Jorja
P.S.  Good thing he's dead, or he'd need dental work.  Dust is not good for your
teeth.

Rocking Chair -- It would've been more fun if we'd been different genders. -- Marlin
Kole

Got the Runs -- Damn, I knew the beans were a bad idea, but they were so good.... --
Marlin Kole

Earth -- Ah, I suppose I "hadn't an earthly" in that fight. -- Cormek Deane

Rocking Chair -- Yeah, Marlin had the right of it.  Things would be a lot more fun if
we were different genders. -- Corbet Josye

Wheel Chair -- "Tag, you're it"?  What kind of gladiator says that? -- Linaea Deane

Evil Trash -- You think I'm going to let you litter my sister's adopted highway?  As
if! -- Loris Deane
