Leah has some interesting ideas
sometimes; this one took our minds off the upcoming Movie and gave us a
new writing style to play with: the media. The Challenge-- write a Public
Service Announcement featuring the characters of Highlander. Since it was
becoming clear that we all had our favourites, she limited our choices
to the 4 Horsemen, Xavier St. Cloud, Kalas, The Kurgan or Fitzkairn.

Yes, Please make this my home page!
My biggest problem this time was choosing between
the 3 ideas that immediately came to mind. My Fitzkairn for Literacy campaign
was knocked out when someone else took the idea first. My third idea, if
you're curious, was Kalas doing a testimonial for the sanctuary Monastary:
"Just ask for Brother Kalas, I promise I'll take care of you. Personally."
Once again, The Ghost Cat presents her MWC,
have you seen these men?
"Crimestoppers": A Mid-Week Challenge
The following crime has been unsolved for the last 3,000 years. The Donan
Wood Foundation has provided a reward for any information leading to the
apprehension of the suspects. All tips are anonymous and confidential.
The incident occurred in a small nomadic village. The suspects disabled
an alarm system; their intention was, apparently, robbery. When a local
explained there were no valuables, the group became enraged.
Reports vary at this point: some claim there were no survivors, others
say that a young woman was kidnapped. The suspects got away with various
personal possessions and may have performed indignities on the bodies.
Suspect #1 is described as follows—
Caucasian male, black hair, brown eyes, with a prominent nose. Last seen
on a white horse, wearing blue face paint. Suspect may answer to the alias
Suspect #2 is described as follows—
Caucasian male, black hair, brown eyes, vertical scar across right eye.
Last seen on a dark horse, wearing scale armour, with black tribal markings
on his face-- possibly tattooing. Suspect may answer to the alias "Chronos"
and is believed to be the leader.
Suspect #3 is described as follows—
Caucasian male, short brown hair, partially shaved skull; dark beard. Last
seen on a dark horse, wearing black leather armour, black markings on right
side of face only. Suspect may answer to the alias "Caspian" and is known
to be mentally unstable.
Suspect #4 is described as follows—
Caucasian male, short blonde hair, partially shaved skull, heavy build.
Last seen on a dark horse, wearing scale armour with black markings around
eyes and in forehead area. Suspect prefers axe over sword; may answer to
the alias "Silas".
All suspects are considered extremely dangerous; do not confront them.
If you have any information, please call 1-800-WATCHER, that’s 1-800-928-2437.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Northlanders will be able to appreciate this, but I’ll explain it
for everyone else. "Crimestoppers" is set up by the RCMP and local police.
It’s a very low-budget television and radio campaign; just short "spots",
about the length of a commercial, usually during the evening news. Picture
America’s Most Wanted on zero budget, and you’ve got it about right.
I was actually surprised, more people recognised the Crimestoppers
format than I expected, even some Americans. One more thing. Please, do
not phone the Watcher number, even as a joke. With the huge number of toll-free
lines in service today, someone might actually answer!!
