How to write to console

I'd like to write to the "default" console of a -STABLE box.  In this
case, no one is logged in on that console/terminal. 

The commands write, talk, and wall mention writing to a terminal of a
logged in user.  Ideally, I'd like to clear the screen and display an
80x25 message.

Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?
