New WA Deputy Ambassador Zara Blackthorne
(AP: The Burgh) Today HIH Empress Jhessan announced the appointment of Zara Blackthorne as Deputy Ambassador to the Festering Snakepit. Ms. Blackthorne is the current Palentine ambassador to Ohmigodtheykilledkenny, and will continue to serve in that capacity as well as taking on the additional responcibilites. In the press conference Her Hottness was quoted as saying,
"Zara has done an exceptional job as ambassador, and has fulfilled her responcibilites with a flair that is to be commended. I wish to further her responcibilites by making her Sen. Sulla's Deputy. this will be a learning experience for Zara, for which she should have no problem making. After all if you deal with Kennyites and Xt'Taps on a daily basis the Festering Snakepits denizens like Dr. Castro and Edouard Heir should be no problem. Besides she can always turn them into frogs if they get on her nerves."
When asked why she made the decision, Her Hottness responded by saying,
"We need to get another person acclimated to the snakepit, because one of these days either Sulla's liver is going to crap out, or he'll be shot by a jealous husband. Quite frankly I'm suprised he's lasted this long."
When asked about Ms. Blackthorne's current duties HIH said,
"Zara will perform both duties. In the festering snakepit she'll only be there if Senator Sulla is unable to perform his dutes due to recuperating from his baccalaenian revels. And its not as if the distance is a probelm. Zara will just wave her wand, say the magic words, and poof,,,instant transportation to the snakepit. Besides its not as if her job in Paradise city is all that taxing."
Later some of our reporters tried to contact Kennyite Sec'y of State Jack Riley and current Kennyite VP Sammy Faisano for comment, especially after it became known that Ms. Blackthorne had been seen in the WA Stranger's Bar, in the company of Dicey Riley. Our readers might remember that Mr. Faisano was once engaged to Dicey's apprentace.
