Ed Blakely: Buffoon

Dorothy: Oh please, Professor, why can't we go with you and see all the Crowned Heads of Europe?

Professor Marvel: Do you know any? Oh, you mean the... thing. Yes

More than likely the "rumor" that Blakely was going to be on this commission originated with Blakely himself.  He's built a career out of being the traveling carnie who sells snake oils and advice from the beyond to disaster-prone marks.  As always, the way one gets these jobs is by hustling.  Blakely hustled his way into a job in New Orleans.  But New York must not have been Kansas anymore.
