: : Now, now, Turkish Trader - I do hope that you will still be allowing the Huggy Merchant to be trading her wares. I see that you are knowledgeable of Edward Lytton's splendid quote

: : Of course, you might want to stop that Yengeese Strumpet from trading HER particular wares - as I think that the genteel ladies of these parts are none to happy with her 'flaunting her goods'.... and for some reason Sheriff Twigg is not being particularly swift in dealing with this matter.
: : Yours
: : The Huggy Merchant
: Dear Huggy Merchant,
: Now then, I am not quite sure what action you anticipate against the Yengeese Strumpet. She has done nothing against the law, so far as I can see, and frankly, I rather fancy the lady's personality. How many settlements can boast a Tart With a Heart, after all? You have to admit, she's not about to present any competition for Doc M. Yes, indeed, I believe a kindly (not to mention attractive) strumpet will add a touch of class to our bawdy elements. I understand she is seeing a lot of Dweebie Day-Lewis, and goodness knows, if anybody could use a gentle influence, that boy can! He's going around looking downright placid lately.

Oh - man! I can't resist! Sheriff, would that be a placid or FLACID state that Dweebie is walking around in........
