                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LIN TIRIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SAND DANCERS, since J took 
top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-1 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, J, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see WIGRAM win a fight and gain 19 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WIGRAM beat BLACK TOM and BLACK TOM lost 15 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be getting 
bland, as DEVONSHIRE 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LIN TIRIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was TJ of J this turn.  
Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a belly laugh.  Heh heh.  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     What does the LIN TIRIAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of LIN TIRIAN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Dangerous Criminal.  Bah.  Why should that alarm any of us?  We're all dangerous
criminals, or we wouldn't be here. -- Tover Duck

Volga -- You know, for the longest time I thought the name of that tune was "The
Vulgar Boatman," and I really identified with that guy.  Learning the "proper" name
was a serious disappointment. -- Harny Black

I sneer at the Dishonest Justice. -- Sarin Sharp
