Another flexible
deadline. Head

ignore for
year after

year.' Raised
specific objections.
And stood

ground. Erased
specific objections.
Struck by

lightning. 'This

God's better
half. Snow
on the

foothills. 'Think
about hair,
elocution and

teeth.' 'The
sort of
thing that

can only
be heard
by bats.'

Random shellfire
in the
darkness. Risks

shattering. 'Will
it work?'
'That is

my scourge.'

Another frayed
day, I'm
afraid. Law

and order
credentials. Downed
travel guide

relents. 'Man
has control
tag removed.'

Illegal dye

world's media

swamp. After
a more
thorough investigation,

Braking news
for motorists.

black smoke.
The 'grave
sins'. Scrap

revaluation. Guiding
not governing.
Family targeted.

Start to
wrap up
in-depth coverage.

The sharp-
nosed fish.

'One of
the best
weeks of

the year.'
Gloating a
crime. (The

screen is
dead, having
been alive.)

Classic election
coverage to
strike across

Europe. One
of the
best thought

out. One
scintillating fact
remains. One

bright day.

Art of
People. For.
Severance package

unites. Unties.
'Accused, as
always, of

willful pussy-
footing.' It's
always true.

'This is
just ridiculous.'
Send-off for

'Leading the
pack in
following the

herd.' Splice
this to
that. In-

surgent godawful
river in
spate. Action

ironic banners.
'Picking over
the books.'

The early
days. Assemble
power move;

lead in

Spellchecker swayed
toward 'Dixie'.
Help's at

hand: hand
out, out
size. 'Size

did not
shatter matter.'
Can't. 'Can

someone shut
that door?
The wind

student loss

of security.
Keep ritual
separate. 'In

case of
explosion shatter
glass.' 'World

mourns for
funeral.' A
funny statue.

Relentless, immoral
secret backing.
('Put your

to see
some changes
round here.'

Specific text.
'It simply

stop. 'Nobody

read that
first one.'
A range

of responses,
some good.

Within days
of the
Pope. Swag

for the
ages. 'I
need to

have everything
explained to
me.' Blind

eye turned
to blind
spot. Fashionistas

speculate. The
proper. Sock
of the

month. Nimble
comback, so
swagger. Another

runover jackpot.
