More victims of overzeallous ruling - Gazette Issue 9 - 1424 S.R.

I'm most angry at our Mayor! But let me start with what happened last night..

Here I was, in Oldfurlong visiting the excellent concert of the Purple Pipeweed Parlor Band, when all of a sudden the singer lost her voice. It was not a sore throat or laryngitis. No, she was punished for repeating the same words too often in a short period of time. Such are the rules of our idiot Mayor: We can no longer sing the same line again and again, even if the music and lyrics so dictate. It is punishable by losing your voice for an entire day, 24 hours!

He claims this rule serves a higher purpose, but it affects normal daily life too extremely. Well, especially if you are a musician or a lover of music. And it happens time and time again. Last night was no incident! Good friends of mine and fellow bandmembers fell victim of this and one of them is now so angry that she has locked herself into her burrow, vowing not to come out until this no-repeats rule will be lifted. Last night it happened to an lady elf minstrel, visiting our lands with her band. And bystanders gave evidence of similar incidents that they had witnessed.

Whatever will be next?
