The Evil Zebra is a mysterious man from the east coast. He has hobnobbed with the brightest of stars. He has appeared on the old (but great) Mike Douglass Show. He has been a referee in the wrestling business.
During the course of the interview, Melissa mentioned a restraining order that she had on EZ. I knew nothing about that order, nor did I encourage her in anyway to get it or maintain it. I was simply there uncovering the facts.
Since then, EZ has been a bit upset with me (as if I controlled Melissa). I merely heard her story and expressed my opinions. While EZ has moaned about my alleged participation, he has never really given me his side of the story. I can only judge based on the facts presented to me.
I have nothing against EZ. In fact, I continually encourage him to send me more contributions for Friendly Encounters. In fact, I encourage him to write a book of his stories. Maybe he can even tell his tale of the Coates situation.
I hope that he can settle whatever issues there are with Melissa. They both seem like great people. They both obviously took a liking to me for some reason. I have offered before and I will offer again to mediate any meeting between the two. Heck, I will even bring some cake (which EZ totally would enjoy).
What more can I do? I expect some sort of reply from the EZ. I expect his usual wit. Check the comments later to see what he says. Hopefully, this will serve as a first step in the mending process.
