                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAL SHANG?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SILVER EYES win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, DAL SHANG may be getting bland, as KOLACTAN KABOB 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.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in DAL SHANG to get a drink than The Blazing 
Unicorn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of DAL SHANG.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
