Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping in once again for another edition of The Straight Scoop! Things have been crazy in my once-sleepy town of Frederick, MD as yesterday – not 10 minutes from my house – a horde of FBI, ATF, and Maryland State Police descended on a local truck stop to apprehend the D.C. Sniper. I can tell you that the snipers are lucky they weren’t spotted by a truck full of drunken rednecks first (commonplace here in Frederick), as they wouldn’t have had left anything for the cops to arrest. Anyhow, as you could probably imagine, we’re all breathing a small sigh of relief now that the gunmen have been caught.

On to The Straight Scoop… remember that this is an editorial take on the news, so the author (that’s me!) will definitely make his opinions known and will try to put more of a gamer’s perspective on the news as opposed to the usual PR Department-driven copy that you usually find on the ‘Net and in print. We hope you enjoy the Scoop, and welcome your feedback as well as your financial contributions. Not necessarily in that order…

As always, if I decide a story is not interesting enough I completely reserve the right to make stuff up.... If you’ve got any “dirt” you want to share with me, or just want to give me a hard time, contact me at

Lay down all thoughts… surrender to the void…
