Dear Salmon Voices,

Both predator and prey, salmon and smelt
have a duty to live by the Ancient Truths.
The perils of not fullly explaining this
will be felt by generations to come.

Dear Salmon Voices,
The world does love a good play,
But the Smelt Incident was too much!
Sincerely, Frequent Sharer.

The Spring salmon played the Summer salmon
in the lower pools yesterday.
The newest member of the Summer salmon
made a huge splash during the match.
But it was the experienced players
who controlled the flow of the match--
pulling off brilliant saves at the last moment by
using the secret manuevers that Soloman Solo
perfected in that famous match
of ten thousand four BCE.
Tonight's match will be held at the Grand Tower
with its new sound system, and it
promises to be most exciting.
Sponsors of the post-match party
regret last week's Smelt Incident and confirm
that they have taken preventative measures.
Remember, all smelt get free passes to the matches--
but are fair game at the post-game parties.
So fear not. Only Love. Play. Swim. Seek the Sea. Return. Die. Leave your eggs as those yet to come.
