Right you are, Ken

Nice try.

I got an email earlier today that something to the effect of, "I'm a reporter for the San Francisco Examiner and I'm doing a story on Streetwars. I'd like to ask you some questions and get a few pictures. Would you be interested in participating?"

The email address was @thesfexaminer.com, a domain that was registered about two weeks ago, when Streetwars started.

I wrote him back and said, "Sure... what would I need to do?" and he responded saying that he'd like to set up a time to meet, and possibly tag along on one of my missions. This is actually kind of smart, because if I fell for it, I'd invite him along on my hit, and he could get me, and then get my target, which he'll have inherited.

I responded and told him I'm doing a hit tomorrow night. The plan is to lure him to a place where I can watch for him from a safe place and soak him when he comes within range. This won't kill him, but it'll neutralize him for 24 hours, and will give me an awesome story.

I have to say that at this point, I'm growing a little weary of Streetwars. It's really a lot of work, and my chance of success at this point is kind of low. If I don't engage my current target by Thursday, I'm sunk. At the end of this week, Sudden Death will start. I don't know how Sudden Death works, but it sounds like it'll be the kind of thing that requires even more time. Plus, I just learned today that I have a meeting in Seattle next Thursday and Friday, which means I'll only be around for three days of Sudden Death.
