Grand encampment bans a prospective knight...and you'll never guess why!

 Lima, OH - The latest push of legislation from the Grand Encampment of the Knights Templar of the United States has left Sir Knights everywhere more confounded than usual. Earlier this week, the Most Eminent Grand Commander issued an edict banning one Mr. Joseph Snow from ever joining the Order. When The Past Bastard requested comment from the GEKT, a spokesperson stated: "The Grand Encampment received troubling information about this individual's past misdeeds in relation to Past Grand Master William Koon II, and the Grand Encampment was compelled to act to ensure that, should this person ever wish to join the Order, he would be prohibited from doing so." 

The Past Bastard caught up with a life-long best friend of Grand Master Koon, who spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of being expelled from the Knights Templar. When asked about the interactions between the Grand Master and Mr. Snow, he replied: "Oh yes Joey was awful to Billy in third grade. Teased him mercilessly. I guess this week that old bully got what was coming to him, not that he's even a Mason or nothin."

Not satisfied without hearing and reporting the rest of the story, The Past Bastard tracked down Mr. Snow and asked him for his thoughts on being banned from any potential membership in the Knights Templar due to his past interactions with William Koon. Mr. Snow's response was simply, "who?"
