Editors note Nyxxie

WELCOME to issue 17 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

I am stepping in for Mika this week as he is quite busy with personal things and school. I hope this Buzz is quite enjoyable for you! This week, we experienced our first State and Nation Don! Dutch, the first to reach the ranks this reset, had a quick rise and fall, but a rise he did have! We were very excited to see this rank promotion. We also said goodbye to Imprenditori Di Successo (my what a mouthful) at the hands of Magz for the retaliation of a friend and crew mate!

Capulet Industries is the center of attention in our Crew of the Week! Along with that, we have other weekly articles including a small Behind the Name, Buzz Sound Off, and our Buzz comic made this week by myself, Nyxxie. We also have the results to last week's Buzz Survey and we hope you enjoy the way we put it all together for you. Completing this week's Buzz is some great articles by freelance writers.
