  •  Christian left (4.00)
    I predicted before this election the Christian left would surprise people and play a big role. So I was one election cycle off...

        •  But of course...one of my first three books, (none)
          back when I was only three or four, was a big book of Sherlock Holmes stories (not a kid's book, the real thing--my grandfather was a cruel taskmaster of English). I read that over and over as a child. Sadly, the volume has been lost. But it's hard to forget the clever Doyle.
          •  Sig (none)
            The other day there was a diary asking for the stories behind the threads. Here was my response.

            Sherlock Holmes
            Mine is from the Arthur Conan Doyle story, "The Adventure of the Dying Detective."

            I think we are living in evil days now.

            But I hope my sig is a reminder that, like Holmes and Watson, we can get through them and improve our situation by loyalty to each other, faithful companionship, intelligence, and, as Holmes' demonstrates in this adventure, a bit of cunning and guile.

            That's a lot for 10 words to carry. But that was my thinking behind choosing it.

            Well, Watson, we seem to have fallen upon evil days. -- Sherlock Holmes.
