I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

"Well, I answered all those tricky questions ParagonSoft sent us."  Doug stated.
"Good, knew you could."  Mark rejoined.
"But where does this leave us?"  Tommy B. asked.
"What do you mean."  Mark asked.
"We are here to buy a game."  Tommy B. replied.
"Yeah, we know."  Doug affirmed.
"How does answering a bunch of fool questions get us anywhere?"  Tommy B. asked.
The room was silent.  They pondered the events of the last several weeks.  they wanted the game back so much, they could taste it.  They wanted it back not for the glory if any and not even for the profits which there should be much more than any.  They wanted it back to run paper missions in Steel, to hold costume contests under the globe on Talos, to have all-nighters grinding through a work-force.  They wanted the game back to be heroes again!

He studied the papers delivered that morning with great interest.  He knew that ParagonSoft couldn't just license it's award-winning game to just anybody.  He had hoped against hope that his boss's boss's boss would reconsider, and relaunch the game.  He shudders every time he remembers that aweful day.  "We are going in a new direction."  The high-ups said.  That is always bizSpeak for "Sorry, you lose---haha!"  And now an outside group wants to license the game and take-on it's running and maintenance.  Basically, they want his old job.  The work they turned in is adequete, but how could he turn his baby over to ... THEM!

"As you can see, those mare-a-cans answered every question, as westerns would." Executive 1 said
"I see, this means that the Korean culutre of the game would be lost." Executive 2 replied
"That would be most unfortunate."  Executive 3 stated
"You fail to see things clearly."  Top-Executive said
"Oh, master, we are so sorry."  executive 1 said
"Yes, you don't understand.  City of Heroes is set in the West." Top-Executive explained
"Maybe these westerners might have a better understanding of the West than we."  Executive 3 said
"Yes, but Mare-a-cans, they are so un ancient." Executive 2 remarked.
They all laughed.

"Most honorable, master.  I have shamed myself and all my ancestors"  Executive 1 admitted.
"Please, explain."  Top Executive ordered.
"I have been dialing the incorrect number."
"You fool!  You are now Executive 9, and Executive 2 is now number 1 executive.  Executive 3 stays where he is."
"Ah shucks."  Executive 3 muttered.
They all laughed.
