                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for HAYABUSA, who pummelled NOBLE ASSASSIN, to pocket 13 
points.  SHINDEN-KAI certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to 
M. CHARDINEE and losing 8 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  STILL HERE 
apparently has better things to do as AMEN-TEI's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  
What can be a greater victory?  SABURO SAKAI has taken his place as the top, as 
AMEN-TEI's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in AMEN-TEI is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for AMEN-TEI?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Red Green -- It made my eyes hurt just looking at you.  All your surfaces appeared to
vibrate where the two colors met.  I found the boundary between the red nose and the
green cheeks to be especially disturbing.  Don't do that to me again. -- Hitch Hiker

Mean Joe Green -- I'll say!  Don't you know that kind of behavior is antisocial and
fattening and probably illegal in three states? -- Roadblock
