Congress Privitaizes Defense as Weston takes big stake in Merryweather. CEO Percival 'delighted to be of service. Disappointing at lack of scope.'
- After Franklin and Lamar
A motion in Congress was defeated yesterday that would have prevented the expansion of companies such as Merryweather Security Consulting’s domestic operations. At the same time, it was announced that famed investor Devin Weston had bought a stake in the company. Merryweather CEO Don Percival has spent the last few months lobbying congress for more domestic contracts. Now he’s got his way with the firm being awarded several national and state defense contracts, although not yet the contract he craves with the Port of Los Santos or any of the country’s international airports. This means for the first time American is now outsourcing its domestic – as well as overseas – defense needs. Percival described the decision as "a farsighted and cost effective way to protect the nation. We will provide well-trained private contractors to do the job overly-entitled federal employees were doing for twice as much money." At the same press conference, Merryweather announced it had sold a slug of its business – thought to be between 10 and 15 percent – to controversial investor, Devin Weston. Some eyebrows were raised at the timings, but Percival rejected these concerns as "pure coincidence masquerading as incrimination."
Dorks line up! Line already forming 3 months till launch of new iFruit phone
- After Marriage Counseling
Sean Douglas has a girlfriend. A group of great friends he loves talking to. A fantastic job. At least, in his mind. In reality the Dukes resident is resting in a sleeping bag outside the iFruit store in downtown Liberty City as the first in line for a phone that won't be released for 3 months. Defecating in plastic bags, eating cans of tuna and being spit on by strangers will all be worth it says Douglas. "Nothing is more important than having a phone two days earlier than everybody else. Some say that iFruit's glory days are behind it - in fact a reporter said that to me yesterday. That's nonsense!" he told us.
Several hitchhikers have gone missing in Blaine County. Police confused.
- After Nervous Ron
"e’re confused" said a police spokesperson yesterday. At the same time, he admitted that he didn't have answers or even really too many questions. "Just a lot of questions about questions and that those questions were themselves possibly not really questions at all. Over the past 12 months, several hitch hikers and hikers have gone missing while walking in the western hills and mountains of Blaine County. Police are baffled as to why. Of the 7 people who are missing, no trace has been found of any of them. Three were drifters, but four were people out hiking in the area. People don't normally just disappear into thin air and that's why we are confused. It's a crime without a victim, without a suspect and without a crime at the moment. We don't know what to say. When we do, we’ll say it."
