Sports fans! The UAP Commandos are on a roll with yet another victory! They sussed the LAS Panthers in No Gravity Hockey. The Commandos Pen Varmons aced two(!) diags off the floor right past Panthers' goalie Dolph Wannameyer. It looked to be a shut but Panthers' west wing Jackson Jackman pulled a slither between Commandos rear guard and bounced the puck in behind Wannameyer. Final score: 2 to 1 the Commandos.

I interviewed Pen after the game:

	So Pen, you were looking pretty awesome
	out there today.  What had you so fired up.


	Yeah, right, well... two aces in one game
	from the floor.  You must be feeling pretty	
	good right about now.


	Were you worried the Panthers were going to
	catch a rally after Jackson sneaked that slither


	So what do you think?  Are the Commandos going
	to take the cup again this season?


Well, there you have it.  Straight from the man himself Pen Varmons.

Level 18 in LAS was an exciting place to be yesterday when the environmentals controls went haywire. A large contingent of security officers were found on the scene by our reporters. Mr. Stryker, head of security was there! I asked Mr. Stryker if this was yet another prank pulled by some misguided hacker. Mr. Stryker with a simple but telling "No Comment".

The President announced she would be going on vacation starting next week for three weeks. She pointed out that she hasn't had one in two years and was due for a rest. Several of her closer associates agreed stating she is obviously in need of a rest.

For the duration of her respite Admiral Richards will assume the day to day duties of the President. However, Admiral Richards stated he is going to rely heavily on the sector Mayors to handle the civilian administration.

The President's absence is once again bringing up the issue of rewriting the constitution to include the office of a vice president. Both the house and the senate are drawing up bills to address the issue over the course of the next few weeks.

Mr. Even Andrews, leader of the organization known as the New Births League, was arrested today along with several of his coconspirators. In what is being termed "Fowlgate", Mr Andrews and his cohorts broke into the chicken coops in LAS and released twenty thousand of the avian prisoners before they were stopped.

The surrounding corridors, access tunnels, transport tubes and people movers were chaos. Although LAS doesn't have many cells (for humans that is) the locals were shocked in many cases to find a fresh meal running around outside their front door. Luckily for the poultry most of Genesis' human inhabitants have no idea how to prepare a "fresh bird".

Biologists and handlers from the board of Agricultural engineering spent the entire day tracking down their fowl friends. By this evening all, but a handful of the escapees were rounded up.

When asked why he did it Mr. Adrews was quoted as saying, "They're treating us all like chickens! Cooped up and only allowed to procreate just so! This was a metaphor for all of us."

Frankly the metaphor is lost on this reporter.

Cheif of Maintenance, Partap Sing, wants to remind folks that it is illegal to warm up your cell by stuffing rags in the air conditioning ducts. Believe it or not this a fire hazzard. Not for your cell but at the various atmospheric plants. When the air flow is redirected it throws the entire system out of balance and sometimes some units are required to work beyond their capacity.

If you're having an environmental problem PLEASE leave a maintenance request.

It's new! It's old! It's Retro-alt, the latest sound to come out of the ass end. I asked Sylvester Gant of "Pearl Spam" what is it that separates their music from the classical alternative sounds of the late 1900s, early 2000s.

	It's the arrangements man, plus we sing all the words
	backwards, you know?  Retro-alt really wants to be it's 
	own thing, but part of the past, you know?

	So you're separate, but connected.

	Totally in a partial kind of way, you know?

	Who among your peers do you feel have caught
	the essence of the Retro-Alt movement?

	Well, "Nin Inch Screws" is cool, and "Alice in Twine"
	has got it down, and like I really like "Shrub".

	How about "Counting Moes"?

	I always thought they were more like Retro-folk,
	you know?
You can catch the rest of this interview in my Emag "Twirl".

Sports fans! The UAP Commandos creamed the LFP Predators in ANOTHER No Gravity Hockey Game today. The Commandos Craig Perkins slammed a bouncer off the Y0 curve to Franz Kregar who slipped it in past Predators' goalie Hans Lichmeyer. Perkins who was ON in a big way today followed this up with a base floor shoot at 45 degrees(!) to totally frustrate Kregar with another slipper!

Justin Earnst and Gabe Smith both blasted in screamers from triple 0 mark to end the game at 4-0. That leaves the Commandos with a 4-1 season thus far and the predators with a 3-2 season. The Predators play again next Friday in globe LFP2 against the UFP Tigers. The Commandos will play next Saturday against the LFS Werewolves in globe LFS1.

Talk about your close calls! MILCOM reported today that Lieutenant Gerald W. Ricks lost his Escapade fighter in a collision with a cloud of ice fragments. Fortunately for Lieutenant Ricks, his on board AI maneuvered his fighter such that a safe ejection was possible. The shuttle Mercury picked up an unconscious but breathing Lieutenant Ricks several minutes later. The Lieutenant is currently in Mercy Love hospital in UAP. Send him your best wishes.
