Gorky, I hear on news that glorious Capellan Confederation recapture ancestral homeworld of New Syrtis, execute leader of Davion squatters.  When New Syrtis Capellan homeworld?  I not remember it from teachings in school, focus on lost homeworlds like Liao, Andurien, Chesterton, Tikonov.  No mention New Syrtis.

Gorky exceptional citizen, so given time off to visit scenic Maskirovka summer resort. He back now, though dissidents think it only so he post positive reviews for resort.

TT

A: Shoot person of interest with issue stun gun. If person fall forward, person is clanner. If fall backward, not clanner. If not fall backward or forward, pursue further testing.

A: Gorky check new MiniTrue-issue textbook. Say New Syrtis ancestral homeworld. Textbook of Arkansas Warrior maybe out of date. Should archive in memory hole and obtain newer copy from commissar.

Gorky, what is with periphery dwellers and affections for livestock?  All know of Filtvelter and sheep on cold winter nights.  Also, allies of Trinity from Concordat seem very fond of cows.  Cow on national symbol, cow on rank insignia, capital named for cow, is worrisome, da?  Then is Canopians and persistent rumors of mermaids.  I not think they understand expression of Old Kentucky "sleeps with the fishes".  Periphery strange place with strange people.  Why we make friends there?

Gorky apologize for long delay. Spend time recuperating in theapeutic gulag of much discipline.

A: New Raven battlemech of pleasing plumpness cause by bounty of great harvest thanks to blessing of chancellor. Am certain not due to smuggling compartments in mech hull for illegal transfer of goods.

A: Is true that cosmic radiation of periphery cause funny neurochemical imbalance, but periphery factions make allies for reason of good synergy. Great Capellan state want liberation of Davion-occupied ancestoral holdings. Periphery allies liberation of want Davion-oppressed barnyard kin.

Has Gorky seen old picture of Honarable Capellan Citizenry carrying Copper nail for yearly tribute? If so, would it be triple today? Or more?

Comrade Gorky, why must Riga always suffer?
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.
