My first press clippings

I have often joked about wanting to be famous. Well I say its a joke, but its a true desire. Only I want to be known for GOOD THINGS, I don't want to be famous for breaking hearts or doing something dishonorable or unseemly.

Imagine my delight when my photo appeared on pg. 25 of the Metaverse Messanger:

Alas, this was when I had my old slouchy AO, not my new fine "Gentleman Jim" AO (which dear readers, I highly recommend). Alas though my visage is seen, my name is absent from the article, as I am referred to as the anonymous "Mr. Drinkwater's second".

Yet, my name was mentioned in the New World Notes!

Mayhaps fame will be mine after all....

Looking at the article cited in the source link, it seems like the focus of the article is on the poets, not their seconds, anonymous or named. A bit of a stretch to call this a press clipping, except for Drinkwater and Somme.

Mr. Nugent-hair

As Mr. Wormser is pictured, he is a part of the article....and while the focus may be on the participants, a duel would not be a duel without seconds waiting to step in and take their place. You sir, are an ass.

I wonder if Mr Nugent-haire is missing some important parts. What are you jealous of Sir Zen?

Mr Nugent-haire,

I know Sir Zen, Sir Zen is a friend of mine, and you Sir are NO Sir Zen!!!
