"By all accounts, sir, the situation on the new continent is a right mess. Everyone's trying to lay claim to their own piece of the New World, and everyone's stepping on everyone else's toes. As you know, sir, I am not one to advocate infringing on anyone's rights, but the fact of the matter is, we all either expand or go extinct. That's simple law of nature right there. Question is, are we going to be able to do it without wiping each other out in the process? I can't rightly say what is going to happen, but we're certainly in for some stormy weather ahead."

"LARAMIE CAPTURES CHERRY CREEK GANG!
Citizens rejoice as the Laramie heroes capture the latest threat to our peace and sovereignty, the rag-tag gang of bandits known as the Cherry Creek Gang! Several key members were hanged this morning to the cheer of an excited crowd, despite several protests from local Clans who pleaded for mercy for their condemned kin. The United States ambassador could not be reached for comment."
