- Bureaucracy x2: State lawmakers plan to disband three commissions and twenty-six state boards that have never met or have outlived their usefulness, according to a published report. Legislators intend to abolish commissions including: one studying the car insurance reform of 1982, the committee on reflectorized license plates, and a commission on disabled children that has not met for fifty years.
- Church x1: Cardinal Edward M. Egan yesterday gave his first homily at St. Patrick's Cathedral in more than two months since undergoing surgery on his left knee.
- Church x3: The tissue remnants from multiple vacuum suction abortions performed at a local clinic was reported stolen to be stolen by religious activists.
- Church x5: There are rumors that a man known as Ruy de Castro is behind the abortion clinic thefts, and that he has done so peaceably in the hopes that the souls of the unborn might be properly laid to rest. Nothing more.
- Church x6: Ruy de Castro is seeking something else from the burial of the unborn. His people have mentioned that he is concerned with the metaphysical destiny of those souls now barred from both heaven and hell.
- Church x7: The Society, who is -in fact- still very much in town, has been working through de Castro (possibly not his real name) and the unborn children to further God's ends.
- Health x1: Investigations are being made into where over one hundred pints of blood have disappeared to, not only from Silver Pines General Hospital (where fifty pints were found missing previously), but from several hospitals throughout New York over the past several months. Thanksgiving, an accident prone season, has hit ERs hard everywhere, as they weren't expecting the deficit.
Blood being transferred anywhere is now kept under close scrutiny, and inquiries are being launched into finding who is responsible for this misappropriation of resources, such that they may be fired.
- Health x2: The tissue remnants from multiple vacuum suction abortions performed at a local clinic was reported stolen to be stolen by religious activists.
- Health x3: Christine Darkwater, the Dominican nun responsible for the arson/murders of the past several months, has been moved to Ward's Island Hospital for the Criminally Insane.
- High Society x2: A fund raising gala is apparently being held at the Ritz hotel (date TBA) to raise funds for various charitable organizations in the Bronx to improve the district. Many wealthy patrons are apparently putting forth funds to aid this endeavor.
- High Society x4: The aforementioned fund-raising gala is being sponsored by a fringe religious group known as Loa's children, which has a few people concerned.
- Industry x2: Global Chemicals has issued a statement denying the claims of its detractors. It states that the allegations of chemical dumping upstate are exaggerated, and that the supposed "mutations" in the local wildlife are deviations that may naturally be found elsewhere.
- Legal x1: State lawmakers plan to disband three commissions and twenty-six state boards that have never met or have outlived their usefulness, according to a published report. Legislators intend to abolish commissions including: one studying the car insurance reform of 1982, the committee on reflectorized license plates, and a commission on disabled children that has not met for fifty years.
- Media x1: While the hit children's TV show The Silver Shogun has been cancelled due to the death of one of its prominent actors, director and writer Edwin Coli has announced that he is launching a concept for a new children's show next Spring, having to do with the adventures of a magical princess from outer space.
- Occult x3: Rumors regarding the enigmatic figure known as Lucasta have died down for the time being, although word of the mysterious supernatural vigilante continues to spread.
Meanwhile, another one of those hot bacchanalian orgies went down in Manhattan.
- Occult x4: The cult known as the Children of the Black Rose have apparently begun to plan some sort of elaborate Winter Solstice ritual, although few people have any insight as to what this might be.
- Occult x6: The Children of the Black Rose are apparently up to something sinister, there are hints that there might be some sort of human sacrifice.
- Police x2: A massive stakeout is going down around a Harlem nightclub called Daemon's. Apparently there is some sort of far-reaching criminal organization that meets there.
- Police x3: Christine Darkwater, the Dominican nun responsible for the arson murders of the past several months, has been moved to Ward's Island Hospital for the Criminally Insane.
- Police x4: Police continue to try to look into the death of Allison Darkwater, the mother of the arsonist nun who struck the Bronx. They are fairly certain now that the case was a homicide and that it might have been a reprisal for Christine's actions.
- Politics x1: A good sized protest went down at Global Chemicals corporate office Wednesday, regarding the dumping of oil-byproducts in various coal mines in upstate New York.
- Politics x2: The tissue remnants from multiple vacuum suction abortions performed at a local clinic was reported stolen to be stolen by religious activists. Not overt forms of political message seem to be implicated, and no group is stepping forward to take responsibility.
- Street x1: The enigmatic leader of the Orphans held a large rally in an abandoned Staten Island warehouse last weak, preaching the unification of several gangs to drive the Furies out of the Bronx and Brooklyn.
Can you dig it?
- Street x3: The infamous Bronx gang-leader Throat Cutter Hernandez apparently still has some fine ex-Soviet guns for sale, as well as some previously thought-to be-lost heroin straight from Mexico.
Large numbers of homeless people have been assaulted or disappeared. As a result, very few hobos, tramps, and bums wander the streets alone, preferring to band together for protection on whomever is preying on the weak and destitute. The police certainly aren't helping.
- Underworld x1: Drugs and guns continue to be plentiful due to the influx of cocaine and sempre from Cuba and the Russian arms shipments heading in through Canada.
- Underworld x4: A massive police stakeout is going down around a Harlem nightclub called Daemon's. Apparently there is some sort of far-reaching criminal organization that meets there, although most people involved in such things haven't heard any word of this before.
- University x1: Columbia University's $7 million expansion project into Harlem is being met with opposition. Opponents say that university has antagonized Harlem residents by insisting that it has the right to use eminent domain and fear it will use it to forcibly remove landowners.
- University x4: Funds have been increasingly directed to a grant for studying wireless network applications in non-secure locations at Columbia University.
