Editors note NYX2000

WELCOME to issue number 92 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

If you missed this week, thank the heavens for us! This week we have yet another issue of the Bootleggers Buzz ready to be cracked open and read by all you fine players!

Topping this week off to a bloody start was the attack of the Asylum and Winter Hill Gang by State Don, fraijv2, rocked the game and may have started off a string of crew takeovers, attacks and shootings!

Making this week what it is, we have articles on the top stories. Crew takeovers and wars usually top our list of stories. It takes a lot to bring down a crew, especially the strong ones and everytime it happens, it is worthy of a story! This week we saw the shoot up of Mobb Figaz, Winter Hill Gang, and The Imperium.

Just when you thought the week wasn't bloody enough, BSF2000 brings forth his Presidential Shootout of 2008. Celebrating the 5th year anniversary of Bootleggers, BSF2000 is giving away 5 ipods to 5 players. If you haven't heard of this just yet, make sure you educate yourself by reading the article and the IMPORTANT sticky to insure you can get a chance to win the grand prizes!

As always, we have our "Behind the Name" (which is a popular segment in the Buzz), and "A Year Back"." Through all the serious articles, there is always time for some that are just plain crazy! We also have the results to our "Bootleggers Buzz Awards" and we hope all of enjoyed the fun that came with this award ceremony! Check back in another few months for another one! We usually do the Buzz Awards every 3-4 months.

We are always looking for writers. If you have what it takes to become a writer, feel free to read the article from issue 85 to see what we look for. Please send a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event to Nyxxie's current name (NYX2000) and she will personally look into it as soon as possible. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead by the time we contact you, please submit the same article all over again! I currently have two articles that need to be read and approved/denied, so do not think I have forgotten about you!

Remember, anyone can write a freelance article and they are obviously free to do so. They are a chance for each of you to have a voice about the game and possibly share any thoughts that you may have with the BL community. Get moving and speak your minds! Also, be sure to check out, as advertised here.

Enjoy the read, everyone and have a wonderful next week!
