Smith surrounded in controversy
Rev. Brendan Powell Smith is a man surrounded in controversy
no matter where he goes. At home? Controversy.
At work? Controversy. Even while on
a simple jaunt to the store for a gallon of milk, Smith
finds himself inextricably enmeshed in controversy.

Traffic & weather together
are looking clear tonight with only minor delays at
the bridges, and a two car accident at the 270/46 interchange,"
said Rev. Smith today in a grainy low-fidelty voice.
"Skies are cloudy, but no chance of rain. Lows
in the 40s tonight, rising to the mid 50s by morning.
Your next update in ten minutes."

C. Everett Koop recognizes BRAD: the
prestigious C. Everett Koop Award for Excellence was
bestowed today upon Rev. Smith's BRAD:
the game. It marks the first time this award
has been given to a website, having usually been reserved
for canned goods products and members of the former
US surgeon general's family. "I am deeply
honored," said Smith at a gala event in Washington,
DC, "and deeply confused."

New computer virus only affects Smith
Microsoft, and AOL today issued a joint warning against
a deadly new computer virus that is rapidly spreading
across the internet through the use of e-mails, file
downloads, and even simple web-surfing. Experts
stressed that although this virus is entirely harmless
to any computer it infects, its sole danger is that
it could "completely annihilate The Rev. Brendan
Powell Smith on contact".

Population holding steady
Slightly allaying people's fears of overpopulation,
Rev. Smith today announced that for the 26th year in
a row, his poulation has held steady at 1. "This
news comes as a great relief," said Smith's mother
who has long been a proponent of controlled population
growth. "When I first heard that he had doubled
in size, I feared the worst."

New mustache comes under fire
A pleasant social gathering turned ugly this evening,
when Rev. Smith's new facial
hair styling came under heavy scrutiny by his peers.
"Woah, what the hell is that?" asked
one. "He looks like Hitler," announced
another." Smith, denying the similarity to
the noted German evil-doer, has announced no plans to
shave in response to these comments, and repeatedly
made clear that he will not be attempting to grow it
into a handle bar mustache.

Smith stands at periphery of celebrity
A new study published this morning by H-NET/Fritz Media
lists The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith as the 3,043rd most
famous living American. This position places Smith
just outside the category of "celebrity".
Smith's current status is 57 notches higher than
last year's study, but he has failed to rise above the
"occasioanlly noteworthy" category since 1993.

F a l s e l y A c c u s
The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith is on the run from the
law, accused of a crime he did not commit. Now
he has 24 hours to clear his name, and his only hope
of survival is his chimpanzee partner and a beautiful
raven-haired woman who wants him dead. When you've
got nowhere to turn, and everything at stake, sometimes
your worst enemy can be your only friend. The
Rev. Brendan Powell Smith is: Falsely Accused.
