                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JURINE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see NITEHAWK SPARKWING win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, CHAM DUGAN beat DRAGON HARVEST and DRAGON HARVEST lost 9 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JURINE may be getting bland, 
as DECAY stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  TRUTH DECAY's 5-9-1 has earned him the Dark Arena. 
Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the JURINE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens
