A Mild-Mannered Reporter: Whose side is time on, anyway?

A Mild-Mannered Reporter: In the case of Scrappers

We're in a small lull for City of Heroes at the moment, and truth be told it's well-deserved. After several months of invasions, updates, previews of the upcoming issues and so forth... it's nice to finally have a chance to just lean back and breathe a little bit.
