Editors note Mika

Welcome to issue #23 of the Bootleggers Buzz!
First of all I am afraid I must be the one to break with the Buzz its excellent streak of morning issues. That is to say, if we go by my time zone or that of the UK. If we go further back it may still be morning, and those people I wish a very good morning and gladly offer you this crispy morning Buzz, fresh of our very own Bootleggers press!

As you will probably have noticed this Editors Note is written in a style that is different from the usual ones, reason for that being that I am not the person who normally writes them. Unfortunately, our very own Poison is experiencing computer difficulties and despite being dedicated enough to want and try to set-up the Buzz via his mobile phone he found that he did not have the time. Luckily there is always someone to fall back on, which in this case is me, Mika. Therefore, I have taken it onto me to set this Buzz up and release it for all of you to enjoy.

That explanation aside, I must really compliment the entire team for this issue. It is their contribution that made it really easy to make these last minutes arrangements and get the Buzz ready for release. So props to all of them, and I would like to extend a special thank you to FlameS for his last minute help with whipping up an article on the attack on Gangsters Sanctuary and for getting in the Game Statistics.

This week's issue also contains another issue of BettyB her column, which focuses again on a crew that shall remain nameless. This time, one of its members apparently saw fit to put her on the hitlist because of her column of last week. In addition to her column we have FlameS' Hot Topics, which focuses on the boosts that followed the Gangsters Sanctuary shootings. Finally we also have an article Sulphur that reminds us all how the State and Nation Don ranks work exactly, and ShyGuy focuses on the debate on the state of the game and how to improve it that was sparked last week.

That pretty much rounds it off for all the articles our official Buzz staff has submitted. On top of those we have two freelance articles for you this week, namely an interview with Mika, submitted by Prince and another weekly joke to put a smile on your faces by Goldhunter.

I hope you enjoy the read for this week and I would like to wish you a good continuation of your weekend and hope that you all have a great week ahead of you.

And like I always used to conclude my Editors Note:

Until next week, take care and stay safe!

- Mika

Joke of the Week Goldhunter

A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: “That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!” The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!”

The man says: “You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you.”
