Drive-By...Spray Painting?
- Lunaya Pravda, Tuesday, April 25, 4 I.R. (article by Rina Douglas, City Beat column)

Luna City commuters were shocked yesterday when pranksters in a scooter spray painted the Coriolan embassy walls purple. This action follows the mysterious inclusion of chocolate in the food served to a member of the embassy at an imperial banquet last year, when as readers may recall, the Coriolan in question remained violet-pigmented for six days.

The colour purple is unfashionable in Coriolan society, and carries with it negative religious connotations.

Lunaya Pravda has also received unconfirmed but alarming reports that the embassy has since suffered several incidents involving the colour purple, though imperial authorities have released no specifics regarding these events, and rumour disagrees as to their precise nature. There are indications of official interest in keeping these matters quiet, and both imperial representatives and the Coriolan embassy have refused to comment on them to the media.

Monday's vandals have thus far eluded capture, and this morning the Empress issued a statement deploring the act. "Our Coriolan friends have the utmost confidence in the combined efforts of the Luna City Police Department and Imperial Security, as do We," she is quoted as saying. "The public may rest assured that the perpetrators will be brought to justice forthwith."

The passage by the Coriolan embassy, located in the Mare Imbrium complex, is now closed to commuters until further notice.

Personally, I suspect Prince Fastred's surviving step-cousin. He just married a Bremeni archon, you know! And has always nursed a deep abiding grudge over his cousin's fall to Librarian Revolution forces in the Battle of Phobos Station. Says the UP Gazette.

(Unless you believe the Martian Globe, which claims Fastred himself is still alive and plotting trouble. I wouldn't know, but there must be some truth in it or they wouldn't be allowed to print it, right?)
