  1. It’s probably my fault for being too obscure. I’d send you the originals from Spy if I could find them, but I’m worried about copyright concerns. Since the magazine is now defunct, and this blog is a non-profit (dis)organization, maybe the former creators of Spy wouldn’t get too upset. At least they don’t have Predator drones (as far as I know).
