The Bruder Report: Aftermath Year and half later

Posted by Fleet News Service on November 4, 2007

((late post this is for 2 days ago)) 

“This is Kelly Bruder starting my 3 part piece called Aftermath the fleet a one and a half years later…

 In the aftermath of the Cylon attack the fleet seems to be a diffrent place than it was before. Cylons were found among us…friends were lost… safety shattered. Here was stand a year and a half later what has changed? The which hunts have made every one on edge. Friends accusing friends…people tossed out airlocks…has any one been brught to justice for this?  I pose to you the fleet a question of your safety and the worthiness of those charge with your safty. Just today I was down in Afterburners…Ashcroft Dyrssen the Acting XO was drinking himself drunk. Making lude comments to every female that came through the door. I asked him about how he feels about the fleet. He gave me a, ” well aside from people being paranoid things are ok” I think he was staring more at my chest and legs than than listening to what I was saying. In the Aftermath lets take a look at the Getto of the fleet the Tylium Queen and her captain, LizzyD Vendetta.  I met Lauri the Hetaera there in Afterburners. I asked her how the Queen was a year and half later. She only said this, “well the repairs are all done its been rather tame. ” We can only hope she is right. As I will be heading to the TQ for the second part of this piece. I ask you the Fleet and my readers…Were do we go form here? Do we turn on one another let the paranoid and the unresponsive lead us into another attack?  Do we sit by and do nothing while our fleet falls apart? Or do we start to take a more active role  and make those whom we have charge to protect us do there jobs. As I was leaving the Bar Madam secretely made a statement, “well i have 18 months of paper work to go through. ” Is this a person we realy want to work for us? I will ask the hard questions you want to know Look forward to my 3 part piece were these questions and more will be answered this is your eye in the fleet Kelly Burder.

    Miss Bruder, I see you have taken my offhand attempt at humour out of context. Please be assured I take my position very seriously, and am saddened that I cannot even jest in front of the Colonial Press!

    “Ghetto of the Fleet,the Tylium Queen”?

    I hope the term “ghetto” was used as a way of raising attention to the difficult economic and social situation of the majority of the people in the TQ and not as a negative connotation for our ship.

    The people here at the the Mining Ship work as hard or even harder, as any person throughout the fleet. Maybe the working conditions and the stress relief lead to some problems and excesses but i believe that the judgments about the TQ are, most of the times, harsher than reality.

    In conclusion, i’m looking forward for your visit to our ship and please contact me, if you need a guide or just to exchange some opinions.

    Shouldn’t surprise you, Madam Secretary. This “journalist” has become notorious for getting half the story, and making up the rest to fit her sensationalist whims. Captain Dyrssen and I share the dubious honor of both having been accused of getting drunk in Afterburners. Since I was actually drinking coffee at the time, I can only reasonably assume that Captain Dyrssen was not in the condition claimed by this “journalist”.

    Similarly, she chose to make an attack on you that was without any basis. Why? Because she’s about sensationalism, not news.

    To the “journalist” that wrote this tripe. You asked Dyrssen about how he felt about the fleet. Dyrssen replied, ”Well aside from people being paranoid things are ok.” And then, paradoxically, she says, “I think he was staring more at my chest and legs than than listening to what I was saying.” Um, no. You asked him how he felt about the fleet, and he answered that question. Where do you come off saying such a thing?

    “I ask you the Fleet and my readers…Were do we go form here? Do we turn on one another let the paranoid and the unresponsive lead us into another attack? Do we sit by and do nothing while our fleet falls apart?”

    It seems to me that the “journalist” that wrote this nonsense is herself one of the architects of the paranoia that she so poorly attempted to report about in this tabloid piece.

    “As I was leaving the Bar Madam secretely made a statement, “well i have 18 months of paper work to go through. ” Is this a person we realy want to work for us?”

    I wish to the Gods that the News-Review had asked the same question when they were considering bringing you in, Ms Bruder.
