I assume that you forgot a smiley or two in the above paragraph! While I do
not expect anyone to remember my mentioning that I am a Holmes fan in an
earlier posting this summer, I hardly think that there is anyone in the
western world who is not even marginally aware of who Sherlock Holmes is.
(Recognizing distorted versions of his name, such as "Shamrock Bones", is a
different matter, of course.)
