Hey here’s some dope we got… We got it from one of our political sources recently. Took us a while to get this story confirmed. It runs back to the election days again. Dateline – Mapusa. A correspondent for a Marathi newspaper -- keeping with our two entry old tradition lets call him Mr G. Mr G took Rs 50,000 from a bald headed politician hailing from Canca-Parra. The politician who also runs a hotel in Vagator was contesting from the Siolim seat. He had shelled out Rs 50,000 to Mr G to be distributed amongst Mapusa based correspondents in lieu of favourable coverage.
Hell… these elections really saw politicos shelling money out like crazy.
Anyways… the story is that the Rs 50,000 never left Mr G’s pocket, while all the time he went about telling the politico, that the money had indeed been distributed.
Somehow sketchy reports reached the newspaper bosses following which Mr G was transferred to the head office, so that a close watch could be kept on Mr G’s activities.
But he shouldn’t lose heart. Mr G should now realise that he has now graduated from the vulture’s roost to the lair of the wolves. There’s plenty of game you can pull down out here too.

Anon 2: Man... look its like this. Maybe its a basic tenet of reportage that deters us from taking names. See... stuff like plagiarism we can track down and show it to you guys in black and white. In such cases we name the culprit and name him, but there are instances where we know 'certain' things for which we cannot reproduce tangible proof... Hence the aversion to mentioning names.... Hope it makes sense... Write back man...
