[quote:Anonymous Coward 710102:MV84MjI0ODFfMTI3Mzg4NjhfODc3QjE0RDk=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 709483] OK, here we are .... again. David Wilkins, from South Carolina and former US Ambassador to Canada in Ottawa and the Russian Ambassador to Canada in Ottawa are acquainted with each other. Easily, I can see that Sanford would take a quick trip to Ottawa for a pre-arranged meeting with the English-speaking Russian. Don't be foolish enough to bet that Sanford is left swingin' in the wind because news is leaked of his partay with the Russian Ambassador. Rather, more to the effect that the news "leaked" out cements Sanford's position with potential supporters and challenges his detractors. " Russian ambassador veteran of Cold War era By John Ward, THE CANADIAN PRESS May 6, 2009 Officials meet Russian envoy over expulsions OTTAWA - Georgiy Enverovich Mamedov, the Russian ambassador to Canada, is a career diplomat who spent a lifetime on the North American file. ..... In 1991, he became Russia's deputy minister of foreign affairs for the Americas, a job he held until 2003 when he came to Ottawa. In 2007, a survey by Embassy Magazine, a publication devoted to the Ottawa diplomatic corps, declared Mamedov and then-American ambassador David Wilkins as the diplomats with the best sense of humour. They also tied for having the corniest jokes. .... He speaks English ..." http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Politics/2009/05/06/9373551-cp.html David Wilkins was Speaker of the SC House of Rep when Sanford was elected to the governor's office. Wilkins was subsequentlyappointed by Bush as Ambassador to Canada and has lived in Ottawa until Jan 20th this year when Obama took office. [b]GREENVILLE, S.C[b].--(Business Wire)-- After spending the past three-and-a-half years ... Ambassador to Canada David H. Wilkins is returning to South Carolina to join the law firm of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP effective Feb. 1. He will be based in the Firm`s Greenville office and will chair the Firm`s Public Policy and International Law practice group[/b]. Laugh if you like, but that wording may be more correct that you realize. There is too much going on in this state (South Carolina) to take the time to put in writing, plus everybody wants links and it takes a long time to look up all the links. [/quote] [/quote]
weird all around!

Sanford Goes Missing
The whereabouts of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) "have been unknown to state officials since Thursday, and some state leaders are questioning who is in charge of the executive office," reports the Columbia State.
"Neither the governor's office nor the State Law Enforcement Division has been able to reach Sanford, who left the mansion in a black SLED Suburban SUV."
"Sanford's last known whereabouts were near Atlanta, where a mobile telephone tower picked up a signal from his phone, authorities said."
According to WCBD-TV, the First Lady said he "has been gone for several days and she doesn't know where, but she is not concerned."
