Dear Secret Agents,

Up in Las Vegas early in the morning? Hmmm…what are the odds really? Maybe you never went to sleep high on winning or losing Vegas adrenaline? – Let’s say, hypothetically, you are up, ok? Well then, there’s a secret mission you shouldn’t miss.

Stranded at the Ghost Hotel

In my most recent mission, I was sent to Yosemite National Park. I was staying at the historic Hotel Jeffery, known for its paranormal activity. Yes, it’s a ghost hotel but that meant nothing to me. Never saw one, never believed in one. When the other agent was late picking me up, I phoned the base to get an update on the mission. I was told the other agent had disappeared en route to meet me. Something fishy was going on.

The Silver Selfie   Recently updated !

Dear Secret Agents,

Last week I visited the headquarters of the Tru’ Revolution in Chicago: the Cloud Gate, which Fashion Police call The Bean. When visiting the Cloud Gate, you should be in silver attire, including your shoes. Due to the crowds, that’s the only way agents within the Cloud Gate can spot you. Yes, there are secret agents living permanently inside the Cloud Gate.

Dear Secret Agents,
The New York Times Magazine has been spying on our last Roaring Twenties Mission. Agent Tru Lavina is featured with an odd name in the caption. Who is this Jeta Bejtullahu?

Secret Agents or Fashion Police?

The Roaring Twenties Mission

Dear Secret Agents,

What a pleasure seeing so many of the Tru’ Revolution Secret Agents at the Jazz Age Lawn Party this weekend, our biggest mission of the year.

Down with black outfits! Viva La Colour Revolution!

Dear Secret Agents,

Those Blue Cobalt Shoes carry secret data about all past flying missions of the Colour Revolution around New York. To make matters worse, they have been seen in the hands of the Wicked Witch of the East, a notorious East Coast Fashion Police agent operating since the late 60s. Secret Agents unite! Let’s find and burn this wicked witch!

Jazz Age Lawn Party   Recently updated !

As much as we enjoyed Easter Weekend, colouring Easter Eggs will not lead to victory. We need to do more. Our country is in danger. Dark outfits have taken over our institutions.
