Editors note Air

Welcome to Issue 25 of the Bootleggers' Buzz. This is actually the first issue after Air announced that I will be the head Editor of the Buzz and I'm actually rather excited. I hope everything goes as planned and the issue is a chock-full of information for our readers.

This week we discuss Elysium's final days and M.I.N.D.'s first baby steps as a statistic-crew, the new and improved Bootleggers' photo album, as well as correct a mistake we printed last week. Along with those are our weekly additions to the Buzz, such as the "Behind the Name," and "Bootleggers' Soundoff!" However, this week, we are missing the "Crew of the Week" and "Settling the Rumors", but will be featuring it again next week! Also in this issue is another Buzz contest following the winner of the Louisianna Race Track last week!

A big "THANK YOU!" is in order for ZebraMan, who donated $250,000 TWICE this week to the Buzz for any of its future contests! Thank you! If anyone else is interested in donating cash for the future Buzz contests, please feel free to contact MsNyxxie!

A big thanks to all people who sent in a freelance article this week as it definitely makes the Buzz better each week when non-writers send in their own stories, so please send in those freelance articles! Talk about anything Bootleggers related, give us your opinions on the week's action!

If you wish to be a buzz writer and think you have the experience and skills necessary (minding your spelling, grammar, punctuation and choice of article), please send your article sample to Air and I through our email address, Please be patient as we look over them once very two weeks. Also, read the "Ticket to the Buzz Forum" article in this issue for a crash course on how to be the best writer you can possibly be!

Thank you for reading and enjoy
Nyxxie and Air
