So what the hell does Canada have to do with FITS? On the day after Memorial Day, no less? Well, according to our website tracker, at least two of our most loyal readers come from the Great North, Ottawa in particular.
And after this post, we're sure they'll be back ...
But more importantly, as it turns out, FITS' part-time contributor Sic Willie was recently the subject of some less-than-flattering comments coming from one of Canada's newest and most powerful inhabitants, the Chief of Staff to U.S. Ambassador to Canada, David Wilkins.
And over a Richland County Council race, no less.
That's right, FITS has learned that Ambassador Wilkins' longtime "advisor" and frequent Sic Willie antagonist, Christy Cox, was more than a tad miffed that our favorite bad boy was actually getting some business (as opposed to imaginary clients) back home and undertook an unsuccessful effort to have him, well, canned.
To our knowledge, this is the first time in history that the Canadian Embassy has ever involved itself in Richland County politics.
Stay tuned to FITS for more on this developing story ...
