Our resident performance artist zikzak will be performing another original piece named, roughly, "orgy." I'm sure you won't want to miss it.

I'll need the Adequacy conference room for next week's installment. If we could get the table out of there in the next day or two I'd appreciate it. The plants should probably be removed as well, except for the Fica. I'll be using that one as part of the piece.

Also, I'm going to need to pull a couple hundred bucks out of petty cash to purchase a few gallons of chocolate milk and several hundred spatulas.

I suppose it's better that you at least asked this time, and gave us the opportunity to remove the table.

Maybe it's just me, but doesn't the table add to the experience? Or will zikzak be providing other furnishings? I doubt everyone likes that fica plant, and while any art should stem solely from the artist, I'm just trying to make things a little more interesting.

As a child I wanted to know everything. Now I miss my ignorance.

What I want to know is, what's up with the Loyalist imagery on the front page? Isn't July 12 a long way off?

(As I often am)

I believe that image is a tribute to the memory of Bloody Sunday, covered in an article on the front page. After all, today is the anniversary, and the image wasn't there yesterday.

The image appeared (and changed) before the article was posted.

I thought for a moment that maybe they were just trying to rile up the Catholics.
