                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ILLIS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for SEMARA?  VIGILANTE JUSTICE's proud of her after beating 
SYLVIA and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SYLVIA's match with 
SEMARA cost her a loss of 10 points!  Boo, hoo!  DILLIS RHIN slew (slaught?  slet?) 
JOHN WAYNE!  Actually I never liked him much.  He just wanted to fight all the time.  
I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ILLIS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Like, who is this guy???  RILEY gets sent to the Dark Arena, 
battles HIGH ELF, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet VIGILANTE JUSTICE manager is 
surprised!  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 gotta leave.  ILLIS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Three-two, not so bad!  Two of the wins were over managed Illusions, too.  The third,
okay, it was a standby.  These things happen.  I lost the title back to John Wayne,
who won't write a column, and Sylvia lost to a kiwi fruit.  Or maybe a kiwi nut?
Anyway, we've had worse turns, and doubtless will again, so we're going to enjoy this
relatively good time. -- Coco Nuttal, for the rest of the Islanders
