The Expurgated Bible
Do youngsters still read The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes? I recall gobbling them up when I was a lad. There is one that I wish to call to your attention: It’s a story about a race horse called Silver Blaze. In the stories, Sherlock is always two steps ahead of the police, and so it is here. The Inspector asked Holmes:
“Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
“To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
“But,” the Inspector said “the dog did nothing in the night-time.”
“That was the curious incident,” remarked Sherlock Holmes.
