My name is so horribly mangled it's not even funny.

But at least I got the first page as compensation.
So you lost your trust,
And you never should have.
No, you never should have.
But don't break your back
If you ever see this,
But don't answer that.

With the windows all closed,
I'll be doing my best
I'll see you soon.

Oops, are you Pseudodude, that's what Q put for who wrote that. I noticed the similarities between that and yours but, I asumed that was two different people.

... a PDF? What, too good to just write it in standard text and post it like regular newspapers?

... Um, yes. I personally don't care for newspapers and the like, but that was much more fascinating to read than a bunch of plaintext. I read plaintext most of the day and it gets tiring. Besides, taking advantage of a printing to PDF is not hard at all-- just Google "PrimoPDF."

Wow, very spiffy! Nice work! =D> You've definitely set the bar high for newspapers to come. I particularly liked the "Recent Happenings in the Town of Odyssey" feature - Jack Allen Dead? \:D/

Kairi's part about Jack's alleged death was my favourite too! :hilarious:

Admittedly, this is the first ToO periodical that I've encountered (or read) but it was very engaging! Good job. :)
