So the Zombie wire has another telegram. Word from the tomb is that Nagin has turned to criminal defense attorney, John Reed, to sheild him from....well...whatever happened with the DOJ the other day. Reed is a Harvard grad, hyper-intelligent, and ironically enough....reportedly despises Nagin to the core. Eli has word that Reed's distaste for Nagin comes from Ray getting him kicked off the HDLC (Historic District Landmarks Commission).
Reed is the guy with the red tie on in this picture (far right):
Ray must be pretty desperate to retain an enemy to come to his defense. I'm sure it doesn't come cheap. Looks like a Rattlesnake Rodeo is on the horizon.
UPDATE: E adds this..."I'd like to get better confirmation about the reasons they don't like each other. I haven't been able to really tell what happened with HDLC so take it with a grain for now. "
Update 2: from E again, "It's confirmed. It happened before the storm. Print it!
