Just got a phone call referencing the old Red Neck bastid, and then I received a belated follow-up email.

It seems that he has been tapped for some sort of DOS thingie in the Carribean. Huh? Yeah, I know, it didn't/doesn't make sense to me either. Methinks Ed's links to the politico-federal system run deeper than we all suspected.

In anycase, DOD's Defense Investigative Service called for a quick phone interview for a background check on the goon. I, of course, gave numerous links to the pol only board, suggesting that he was a card-carrying ultra-left libby with decidedly conflicted John Birchian views on gun ownership. Kinda like a Kinky Friedman Freeman of sorts.

The DIS agent actually understood my humor for a change. BigBill can tell you what those wet socks are normally like.

But I digress. So, I write OES an email immediately afterwards titled "HEY F#CKER, WHAT THE HELL?!" ...And he wrote back. Turns out he's currently in Tortola, British VI. ? No idea...never been there. He's under the care of the British Consulate, where he's being polished up (bishop polishing?) before leaving on some oddball excursion to CUBA (!) on behalf of the Constitution and the country whose course it directs.

WTF?

He hasn't answered that part yet, although I'm sorely tempted to call the DIS goon back to tell him that OES cheats at cards, can't hold his liquor and openly supports Earth First.

I'd say that's the cover story. He was hemming and hawwing about coming outa retirement. I think he got the call from Camp Hillary, the money was too good, and the thrill of the hunt too compelling. Probably been sittin' on the Isls resting up for the big push into '08.

Anyone got a real pic of him?

I saw one that Js bandied about but I question the authenticity... ;)

I'll bet he was tapped to infiltrate Cuba and shoot out the speakers at the national palace, because Fidel has been blasting "Freebird" all night.

whether a guy named Youssarian was flying him around or anything? This sounds soooo Catch-22 in it's potential for farce.

Love it.

BTW, if we hear that he's been dispatched to the Horn of Africa, I think that I would be able to tell you exactly who OES really is. I bumped into a guy at Ft. Benning that really made me suspect that it was OES. Civilian. Processing through to do some "security" work in Gabooti (sp?). Had that touch of ******* to him. Oh and that glint in his eye, too.

No burboun on his breath. He could quit any time he liked, as he's said over and over.

Djibouti.

Fun to say no matter how it's spelled.

I got a short one from him today that didn't detail much. Something about Hitlery's campaign funds. Seriously. Although, I think he's joking to try to get a rise outa Steam and Sloan.

BUT, I just saw on Velonews that Merckx was in Cooba presenting the generalissimo with a nuevo bicci. Yeah, um, right. Gotta wonder what the hell OES is doing with regards to that.

I keep asking for pix. Nothing yet.

Here's an excerpt from his second communique:

This trip has been COOL. I lately dumped the ladies and the in-laws, and settled in for a bit with friends of friends (political) (rich guilty libs) here on Tortola, British VI.

Yep, pinhead Limeys, of a sort, the wife anyway, but nice folks. I DO recognize the irony. They've given me the use of a nice sleeping porch, with surf view/sounds, and a working Hot Spot. Hillside villa. I've provisioned us with several/many FIVE DOLLAR quarts of local rum and, well, you can imagine. There's a bar in town that I brought to its knees with a political debate last night. Or three days ago. Hmm. God damn rich slap-happy slickhaired American Republicans vs. me and a little blonde large-busted union schoolteacher hottie from Michigan, who shyly admitted her Democratness to me after 3 pina coladas and I said, "Wonderful. Let's have some fun. I smell a nest of fascists in this room. Just follow my lead." I set 'em up and mowed 'em down, and she was, after a timid start, happy & eager to help. By the end of the evening we were in love, if barred from ever entering the premises again. All charges, thankfully, were dropped. The playout of the evening, son, the denouemont, I will leave to your imagination. Ho, ho.

What time is it? I smell shrimp boiling, and I'm starved from snorkeling all day off a free-beer leaky catamaran run by ***** ganja addicts. Good times in the VIs.

Thanks Scott!

Be sure to give OES a big HELLO! from the gang.

He is missed but not forgotten.

Actually, I'd say he's my soul mate, BUT

I really don't groove on ******* Nazis who don't enjoy Skynyrd.

Got this while I was out washing the car. I'm NOT making this up, I swear:

OBTW, What's a 2005 Merckx MX Leader with triple Record 10 worth at current exchange rates? Need to know by 0600. Will explain later. Bizzare. Thanks for Naval advice on waterproof bag. Ho, HO.

EdBLACK --

As for my "naval wisdom" about waterproofing a bag? I summoned all my 15 years of experience and told him not to fall into the water. Makes sense to me. BigBill, what say you?

I don't know how to waterproof bag something unless you use a bunch of that white shrink wrap and a heat gun. Might take a while with something big. I had to hang out in a supply warehouse once waiting on a part and was fascinated by the way the boxkickers would put a pallet on this turntable thing and using a giant roll of saran wrap, completely put a part inside a plastic cocoon. I don't know why Letterman hasn't featured this. It is probably what happened to Hoffa, one big wad of saran wrap under the Meadowlands. I am sure that OES could tell some saran wrap stories.

You sure he's not in jail in Tijuana for trying to pick up that 14 year old boy? I read about some hick from Kentucky getting arrested there a few days ago. ;)
