The Mayor of Weaseltown.

Took it upon himself to make the determination that one of my Directors was the wrong woman for the job. Politely informed me, as a courtesy, that he'd be taking advantage of a momentary constellation of management incompetence and political intrigue to torpedo her career. Which he partially succeeded in doing, through dishonesty and manipulation and the malice of his newfound friends.

What does he care about seeing me? Gossip: his whole historical circle are dying to know.

Bah. I'll leave the table, and, I did.
