                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon AMEN-TEI, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  EXCLAMATION!?  Who?  STARSHIP TROOPERS is the top 
team these days, buddies!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but 
NUTS! will tell you 65-68-8 is nothing to laugh at...  NUTS! had cause to celebrate, 
after MACADAMIA got 23 points by beating ANNO DOMINI.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to MACADAMIA.  
(Discrete enough, ANNO DOMINI?) In AMEN-TEI, nothing is permanent (except Death), and 
we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, CASHEW.  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?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in BOMBS 
OVER BAGHDAD are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, NUTS! scurried away from BOMBS OVER BAGHDAD.  Oh, 
the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, SHUCKS is the most challenged warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  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.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for AMEN-TEI?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
