When we last left DeliveryMan and PaperBoy, they were sitting in the WestEndNewsMobile in a 15 Minute Parking Zone in front of the Fresh Approach Market on Brackett Street wondering why their trusty chariot wasn’t performing up to its usual standards. In fact, it wasn’t performing at all. It was just sitting there motionless waiting for the Parking Division to show up and start marking tires and writing tickets. PaperBoy, who’s no trained mechanic, thought the problem might be in the wheelbase, whereas DeliveryMan, who’s no mechanical genius either, was certain that it was the conveyor belt that was malfunctioning. Luckily, the guys from the Parking Division took pity on the boys, who were obviously helpless in this situation…

Dear Comrade,

How are you today? Hope all is well. Please be informed that I have decided to contact you for a fund transfer transaction worth the sum of US$22,300,000.00 into your reliable bank account as the sole NEXT-OF-KIN to the foreign deceased customer of our bank (an International Billionaire French Businessman) who was killed with his entire family by PLANE-CRASH in Central England atmost 3 years ago. Since his death occured, no body have show up as his next of kin for the claim because the account is untraceable. Upon the investigation I carried out from his records, I found out that his foreign business consultant who would have trace the account died earlier before the deceased. Therefore, this is a confidential and sealed deal…

A dear friend of the art and music community, Melynda Amann has very recently been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Melynda is a music booking agent in Portland and also the lead singer in a local band called By Blood Alone.
