To you, Eddie’s the narrator and nexus character around whom the action revolves in Clinton’s Ditch. Inside the strip he’s everybody’s friend and affordable handyman. Although community college educated, Eddie’s never had the burn to leave for greener pastures, make a lot of money and retire. He’d rather be the “fixer upper” who keeps everybody’s lights on, toilets flushing and lawn mowers buzzing in Clinton’s Ditch until the day he drops. Although he deals with a seemingly endless array of problems, nut cases and unbelievably head-shaking events, Eddie’s patience and fortitude keep Clinton’s Ditch registered on the plus side of the civic sanity meter. Barely.
Oh, yeah … Eddie’s also co-holder of Clinton’s Ditch most amazing secret.
