Jeannie Vanasco


A secret list of enemies exists, journalists report.

No one can obtain the list of enemies, journalists report.

The phones are being tapped, journalists report.

Some journalists disappear, no one reports.

The diet secrets of the new beautiful heiress are revealed, journalists report.

The telephone poles tell secrets to one another.
