     Yeah, therein lies one of the problems with announcing issue titles at
the end of the previous issue.  I felt bound to keep the "Beetle Battle"
title, even after I decided it would work better (for values of "work" that
should become clear next issue) for the conflict to resolve the way it did.

     Don't worry, plenty of fighting scheduled for #70.  And some significant
payoff.  :)
