- A quarter of all the traffic policemen in Capital City have been caught by Internal Affairs taking bribes, and were promptly fired.
- As a bonus, 19 of 27 people operating a customs station on the border between Small Country and Russia were fired for the same thing.
- The M/S Regina Baltica beached itself off the coast of Sweden last night. Passengers headed for Capital City were given free booze while the ship limped to Kappelskär harbor. Eleven years ago to the day, the M/S Estonia sank for undetermined reasons, producing the biggest loss of civilian life since the Titanic (over 800 people dead).
- Saw not one, but two pile-ups on my five minute drive to work today. Probably a dozen cars involved altogether.
