                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I suppose it's true that you're a "bad girl," Chelsea, but I *like* bad girls.
They're more fun.

                                    Bud Bollard

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon AMEN-TEI, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at BAD GIRLS left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by WAYFARERS.  Good show!  Practice pays for 
LUCY BORDEN, who pummelled MEDICARE, to pocket 24 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 12 points to VARICOSE VEIN.  
(Discrete enough, LADY JANE?) BUD BOLLARD found out being AMEN-TEI's Duelmaster isn't 
all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  The arena was more crowded than usual 
this time, as FLATULENCE faced AMEN-TEI's Duelmaster.  The Duelmaster is dead.  Long 
live the next one.  TOO OLD is ecstatic as FLATULENCE becomes top dog.  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.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
WAYFARERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BAD GIRLS, so did that sorry team shy from 
WAYFARERS  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
More than one waitress at The Swinging Aardvark was spilling more drinks than usual 
last week, as MEDICARE's early demise became known.  What will TOO OLD do???  Ask not 
a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in AMEN-TEI is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid AMEN-TEI 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
