Subject: Message Ready to Read (MRR)

Expanding our exiting 'Message Ready to Read' (MRR) supply, we are proud to deliver the new agreed-upon format for the body count campaign. (We have now succeeded in a single format for the eastern and western campaign!)

This will help you to achieve reporting the recommended 10:1 ratio of casualties in any future incident.

Gosh, Lukery, that torture centre described in that article reminds me of something. Gee, I can't think what. I'll have to sleep on it. It'll come to me I'm sure. /snark>
