                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause 
for celebration, according to INGRATE WHITE NORTH.  Practice pays for BEERZILLA, who 
pummelled KOTTER, to pocket 18 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 3 points to BEERZILLA.  (Discrete enough, 
KOTTER?) Now I can't insult PRIME MINISTER, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  
Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARADI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
