The controversial American History X is an excellent film directed by Tony Faye starring Edward Norton and Edward Furlong.
However, the 40-year-old director said that he did not usually talk about financial matters. Mr Russell added that it would be difficult to negotiate salaries in a movie starring a lot of renowned actors and actresses. This volume most closely resembles a scrapbook, and was probably the most fun to do, but it made clear to me how naive my original view of this undertaking was.
Frank Morleya€™s Sherlock Holmes Crossword, published in the Saturday Review of Literature in May 1934 by Christopher Morley as the BSIa€™s first entrance exam, and as solved that month by Katherine McMahon, then of Elgin, Ill., who was invested in the BSI as a€?Lucy Ferriera€?a€” in 1991. Young Kit also indoctrinated his two younger brothers with a love for Sherlock Holmes, through secretive readings and quizzes in the attic of their parentsa€™ home. Sherlock Holmes may not have been much on Christopher Morleya€™s mind when he was starting his career, but by the mid-a€™Twenties his interest was beginning to revive. The early a€™Thirties were exciting years for devotees of Sherlock Holmes, and not for the Complete edition alone. By now the Three Hours for Lunch Club had spun off another, smaller luncheon club, the Grillparzer Sittenpolizei Verein a€” the Grillparzer Morals Police Association a€” so-called because Morley had deployed an old book about Franz Grillparzer the Austrian dramatist, picked up at a bookstall, as the cluba€™s record-book: members and guests would open it at random, underline likely looking passages, write appropriate remarks in the margins, and sign, and Morley would endorse it by affixing to the spot some handy if incongruous seal.
But it is startling to realize that in 1934, the founders of the Baker Street Irregulars were considerably closer to the Victorian era, in which they had all been born, than we are to them today.
I was born half a dozen years after that decade, in 1946, growing up in a world immeasurably changed by World War II and its aftermath. There is a good deal we dona€™t know about the BSI of the a€™Thirties, and many unanswered questions will be obvious. The present volume would hardly exist at all, were it not for the generous assist-ance of others.
Of the signatures in the programme, a few are hard to make out, but most are familiar to us. I should like to say something, when appropriate [at the next BSI dinner], about old Christ Cella, in whose speakeasy on 45 Street the earliest mtgs of the BSI were held. Having said thus, and noting further that the 267 page, indexed paperbacka€™s press run of 500 copies, published in mid-October 1990, was already sold out by the 1991 BSI dinner in New York last January, what is left for this reviewer to say?
His Holiness the Pope, when speaking ex cathedra, need consult only four primary sources to get at The Truth. The late Bill Rabe (a€?Colonel Warburtona€™s Madnessa€?) was the founder of The Old Soldiers of Baker Street (The Old SOBs), creator of the BSI annual dinner weekend institution of Mrs.

The local American Heart Association is making final preparations for its signature black-tie gala, the Central Arkansas Heart Ball.
The Lambs have been impacted by heart disease and are passionate about finding cures and raising awareness. Thousands of people are expected to come together for a morning of communal worship on Sunday at the Annual Community Easter Sunrise Service.
Louise Allison: Once I realized how prevalent it is here and that there was nothing in our state specifically designed for trafficking survivors, I asked law enforcement what their top request for help would be that someone like me (a nurse with NO law enforcement background) could provide. IA: What's something surprising about human trafficking that might surprise our readers?
In 2012, Arkansas was considered one of the worst states in the nation for having made minimal efforts toward a basic legal framework to combat trafficking. LA: Party with a Heart is helping to spread the word about the reality of trafficking in our state. Obviously ankle-wrap sandals are a must for this spring (the better to show off your pedicures, my dears!), but would you take a look at these from Rachel Zoe?

Korto Momolu is an Arkansas designer renowned for stellar appearances on both season 5 and All Stars season 3 of the hit reality fashion competition, "Project Runway." Well-known in the fashion industry since her debut on the Lifetime series, Korto has participated in NYFW multiple times to much editorial acclaim, but says that this is her final showing. Luxurious fabrics and classic houndstooth are seamlessly paired with edgy leather, fur accents and the most surprising design element of the night – chunky crocheted scarves, jackets and even sleeves.
Korto brought a team of Little Rock makeup artists and stylists for the show to expertly execute the models’ smoky eyes, rich red lips and intricate updo braids. And, I marvel at the incredible discoveries like finding new local restaurants and boutiques with friends. This year, your valentine can do more than just brighten a patient’s day, thanks to an anonymous donor. Also new this year, ACH will be accepting new art supplies for patients to create their own valentine cards. As you reflect on your many blessings, I hope you’ll remember our four-legged friends. While Black Friday promotes holiday shopping and Cyber Monday encourages online sales, GivingTuesday highlights opportunities for charitable giving during the holiday season. Join renowned opera singer Kristin Lewis, former resident of Little Rock and alumna of the University of Central Arkansas, for an opera gala on Sunday, Nov. Kristin shared her insight and inspiration in an exclusive interview with Inviting Arkansas. Kristin Lewis: The Kristin Lewis Foundation is an Arkansas-based, nonprofit organization whose purpose is to shine a spotlight on talented musicians. KL: One of the greatest challenges that many young singers face is securing the financial means for the vocal development and training associated with auditions and competitions. IA: What are you most looking forward to at your upcoming opera gala at Wildwood Park this Sunday?
KL: What is most exciting about the opera gala is the collaborative effort between the Kristin Lewis Foundation, Wildwood and Praeclara, the performing arts organization supported by Second Presbyterian Church.
On Sunday, the 18th, the girls at Stilo Salon will be doing makeovers and blowouts for free with a donation, and you'll be greeted with food, drinks, auction items and games. We got a sneak peek of items available at the annual Pop-Up Shop benefiting Women & Children First.
Shoppers have the opportunity to purchase some of the finest labels in designer clothing, purses, accessories, shoes, gowns, furniture and home accessories. In addition, gently worn apparel from some of the city’s best-dressed women has been donated, professionally cleaned and will be available for purchase. Each year, community leaders wear their dancing shoes for the coveted winning title that is earned at the Dancing with Our Stars Gala. Originally from Hamburg, Kirk divides his time between Little Rock and New York City as a financial advisor with Edward Jones Investments. Lesley Oslica, president of the local chapter, says Kirk is a true asset to the Children Tumor Foundation’s efforts. Kirk Bradshaw: Family is close, friends are everywhere, and I want to help make my city a better place.

Natalie Rockefeller volunteered at her first political fundraiser when she was just 7 and has been involved in different causes ever since. Lesley Oslica, president of the Arkansas chapter, says it has been a gift to get to know Natalie. Natalie Rockefeller: I grew up in Southeast Missouri and moved here after graduating from Arkansas State University, but Little Rock has always felt like home to me. NR: Win and I attend a lot of formal events in Little Rock that have a band and include dancing, but we rarely dance. Cook’s Landing Park on the North Little Rock side of the bridge is the staging area for the event. Methodist Family Health provides comprehensive psychiatric and behavioral healthcare to children and families in Arkansas. Little Rock's eclectic restaurant community is featuring specials and discounts to commemorate this last month of summer. Horn, a native of Fort Smith, has received numerous awards and was designated an Arkansas Living Treasure by the Department of Arkansas Heritage in 2008.

This free, family-friendly concert starts the evening’s festivities with a fireworks display that end the evening with a bang! This film chronicles the behavior of a ex-nazi skinhead named Derek Vinyard (Ed Norton), the events encompassing his incarceration, and the effects of his life on his younger brother Danny (Edward Furlong) who idolizes him. He said this at a fundraiser dinner for The Glenholme School held at NYC's Bryant Park Grillon. Less than three months later the entire run was sold out, with none for sale at the BSI dinner in January where many Irregulars had expected to purchase it, making it the scarcest volume of the entire series.
He helped found the Saturday Review of Literature in 1924, serving as an editor along with his a€?Bowling Greena€? column (later joined by a second one about the publishing world, a€?Trade Windsa€?). There was also William Gillette, performing his deathless melodrama Sherlock Holmes one long last time, as his Farewell Tour was cheered across the country. It was just a youthful thirty-one years from Sherlock Holmesa€™s retirement from practice in 1903 to the BSI in 1934; it has been a middle-aged fifty-six years since Christopher Morley and his cronies created the whisky-and-sodality in which we continue to imbibe today. But I inherited a nostalgic fascination for the a€™Thirties from my parents, who had loved that decade, and communicated that love to me. Art Deco was the style, and a€?Eberson Ambera€? light bathed the interior of theaters, clubs and restaurants in a dreamy golden glow. Readers are therefore reminded that a central purpose of these BSI archival histories is to assist further research by others, and not to stand as the final word on the subject. I am especially grateful to those who contributed original essays to this volume (and for much appreciated assistance of other kinds!): Steven Rothman, George Fletcher, Peter Blau, Jean Upton, and Robert G.
At least we are certain that it took place, for a programme survives, signed by a good number, if not necessarily all, of those who attended. Joining the expected crowd of Morleya€™s Irregulars were a few other favorites of his, Don Marquis the humorist, Stephen Vincent Benet the poet, and Isaac Mendoza the bookseller, kinsprits all, we can be sure. By the time the BSI called another dinner, several years later, a new venue had to be found.
Jon Lellenberg, to bring us The Word of the beginnings of the Baker Street Irregulars, must plow through scores of a€?eye-witnessa€? accounts a€” letters, newspaper clippings, and magazine articles a€” and ex post facto reports: all subject to the alcoholic haze and morning-after indigestion common to those who gather to celebrate Mr. As Lellenberg murmurs at the conclusion of his eighth chapter, a€?we shall probably never have all the answers.a€? But, do we want The Truth? Hudsona€™s Breakfast, devisor and first promulgator of Voices of Baker Street, editor of the Sherlockian Whoa€™s Who & Whata€™s What, and author of many other works, including We Always Mention Aunt Clara (1990). One evening each year offers patrons the opportunity to mingle with other art enthusiasts and adorn their homes with a variety of extraordinary artwork. The art displayed in The Rep’s lobbies are available for purchase with proceeds from gallery sales going directly to artists. It was created by then-associate director of The Rep, Cathy Sawyer, as a fundraising project to enhance the theater’s overall mission to provide top-notch live professional theatre in Central Arkansas. I left Arkansas in 2004 and on one of my brief visits back home, my mom had received two autographed eggs to paint. The evening gives girlfriends an opportunity to dress up, have fun and dance the night away – all for a good cause. PATH offers training that educates volunteers about the darkness that surrounds human trafficking.
I want them all to have the opportunity to seek refuge, to find peace, hope and reconciliation.
We have victims and families of victims right here in Central Arkansas that have experienced this tragedy firsthand. The evening offers girlfriends an opportunity to dress up, have fun and dance the night away – all for a good cause.
One room in the house was devoted to a makeshift dance floor and it was packed the entire night.
This month’s box is named after Robert Fulton, an American engineer and all around dapper chap. The evening will include both silent and live auctions as well as dancing and honoring local volunteers. The mission of this organization is to prepare older and former foster youth for adulthood by connecting them to existing resources and sustainable networks of support.
About 40 percent of those calls are from minors, many who still live at home and go to school every day, yet are being sold for sex against their will.
They are a group of passionate women who are alerting our communities in a way that is both educational and fun bringing something very dark into the light. They feature metallic, braided straps, a tie at the ankle and the most swoon-worthy tassels to complete the look.
Geofilters are fun and engaging location-based art that can be added to photo and video Snaps.
Instead of its customary box, this latest grouping of men’s accessories arrives in a special travel bag, encouraging the adventurous spirit in all of us.
I was lucky enough to snag a front row seat at the elegant Affinia Hotel in downtown Manhattan to bring an exclusive sneak peek of this Arkansas designer’s concluding collection to her friends and fans back home. A marked departure from her previous lines, which showcase bright colors and bold, striking patterns, her newest collection is more muted – predominately black and shades of gray ranging from charcoal to silver, with the occasional pop of yellow like a welcomed ray of sunshine.
Seems either no one is talking about louis daguerre at this moment on GOOGLE-PLUS or the GOOGLE-PLUS service is congested.
The wish list includes construction paper, rhinestones, sequins, foam stickers, googly eyes, kid scissors, markers and glue dots. As the holidays approach, I am thankful for the opportunity to join CARE as its executive director. Through no fault of their own, many cats and dogs will find themselves homeless during the holiday season.
A $15 donation gets you a professional 5x7 print, and Christmas card packages are available. Internationally renowned American bass-baritone Kevin Short will appear as a guest artist, along with acclaimed Manhattan-born collaborative pianist Louis Menendez. Formerly a section leader in the choir at Second Presbyterian Church of Little Rock, she began her vocal studies at the University of Central Arkansas under the guidance of Dr. Our purpose is to encourage and aid in the development of singers who aspire to careers in classical performance. I always loved singing, but I never seriously imagined a career in performance until I began taking voice lessons during my undergraduate studies at the University of Central Arkansas.
To stand and sing on that stage with great artists such as the magnificent conductor, Maestro Zubin Mehta and the Israeli Philharmonic was truly surreal. Bevan Keating, the artistic director of Praeclara, has brought together many exciting artists to participate in the concert who have dedicated their talents toward making this event what I anticipate being a wonderful success. I acted on instinct when I began the series and later came to realize my own relationship with this process was apparent in the images. Thanks to our friend and Little Rock fashion enthusiast Joshua Price, we got a behind-the-scenes exclusive from her Romas collection show at New York Fashion Week. Home furnishings will also be on the showroom floor, including participation by Hank’s Fine Furniture and Eggshells Kitchen Co. A portion of gala proceeds is donated for grants to send Arkansas teens to the International NF Camp. She researched for the 2000 Bush Presidential Campaign and worked as a professional fundraiser. My husband and I moved here with our two children ten years ago and have been blessed with so many friends and opportunities to make a positive difference in the community.
I took my first (and only) dance lesson 15 years ago with my future husband ahead of our wedding. A portion of the proceeds is donated for grants to send Arkansas teens to the International NF Camp. As an adult, I recently started back and it's been a great experience that I plan to continue.
Since her husband, Win Rockefeller, is a lifelong Arkansas resident dedicated to various organizations, Natalie naturally champions for the causes important to him. She has enjoyed learning more about the Arkansas Children’s Tumor Foundation and is looking forward to being involved with an organization that is doing so much to change the lives of so many children, both in Arkansas and across the country. I met and fell in love with Win and we have two beautiful little boys that were born here in Little Rock.
Win and I are very selective of the organizations that we involve ourselves with because we want to be 100 percent dedicated, but we also know that it's potential time away from our boys. I agreed to dance at this event to help raise money and awareness, but this event isn't about me.
Established in 1899 as the Methodist Orphanage, today's Methodist Family Health provides services across the state through a Continuum of Care that includes a 60-bed hospital, residential treatment centers, therapeutic group homes, community- and school-based counseling clinics, an emergency shelter and other specialized programs. She is the founder and first president of the Collectors of Wood Art, an organization established in 1997 to cultivate more interest in wood art. The film begins with Derek violently murdering two black men that are trying to break into his car and home. The earliest of which we know was at the turn of the century, long before the Baker Street Irregulars.
One was in literature: he was already a published poet, and now he began to write novels as well. He had made a splash in 1917 with his bestselling novel Parnassus on Wheels, and was following it up every year with one or two new books, some of them bestsellers as well: The Haunted Bookshop, Threea€™s a Crowd (with Earl Derr Biggers, later the creator of Charlie Chan), Where the Blue Begins, Pandora Lifts the Lid (with Don Marquis), Thunder on the Left, Seacoast of Bohemia, and others. Morley, unlike some bookish people, was the most gregarious of men, and drew others to him irresistibly. Morley once more found, as he wrote later, that a€?one of the blissful ways of passing an evening, when you encounter another dyed-in-the-blood addict, is to embark on the happy discussion of minor details of Holmes-ianaa€?; evidence that Morleya€™s old exegetical spirit was picking up a€” the impulse to treat the Canon as historical truth, and revel in its details a€” began to appear in his Saturday Review of Literature columns from 1926 on. There was Sherlock Holmes on the radio for the first time, and Sherlock Holmes on screen with Arthur Wontner and others portraying him. Most Sherlockians have a certain sense for the Victorian era, since for us it is always 1895, but perhaps less, at this remove, for the more recent decade in which the BSI was born. For a few years they actually enjoyed moving from apartment to apartment every six months, for the fun of living in different neighborhoods, until in 1935 they built their dreamhouse. They lived in a city famous for its jazz, and they never missed an engagement when Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, the Dorsey brothers, and other national bands came to town. Smith would keep minutes of the BSI annual dinners, but in the a€™Thirties they seldom bothered. Answers to many questions no doubt exist Out There somewhere, in unexamined newspapers and correspondence and diaries. As Chris Morley put it somewhat unchronologically in his acerbic 1949 essay a€?On Belonging to Clubsa€?: a€?The quiet speakeasy where we met was trampled into covercharge by runners and readers and their dames . He is part of the Blue Carbuncle saga because it was he who provided the Goose which was cooked for our 1st Xmas dinner, 1935 or whenever it was [December 7, 1934], and how baffled he was when (after hunting all over town) I found in a Woolwortha€™s on Nassau Street (down town) the exact sort of blue-glass star-jewel, an awful thing with pseudo-iridiumpointillists which he was to cook, inside the goose.
It is enough to read Woollcotta€™s New Yorker report of that first BSI annual dinner, and emendations by Vincent Starrett and Christopher Morley. Established by Tifany Hamlin, Yvette Parker and Lisa Guerra, new nonprofit Party with a Heart is hosting a festive evening to benefit a very important cause. With busy schedules to consider, however, it’s rare to actually get the chance to dress up, enjoy a night out with girlfriends and dance. Proceeds from donated art sold at the annual ArtWorks auction support the general operating fund of the theatre.
The first event was hosted at Main Street Mall as The Rep prepared for its big move to its current location, the Galloway Building at the corner of Main and Sixth streets. ArkansasGives is the perfect opportunity to make your charitable dollars count for even more. He started painting alongside his mother and watching his dad build anything out of just about anything. This year, I created a steampunk octopus called "20,000 Leagues." It has been retrofitted with lights and a clear Bluetooth speaker as well. After completing volunteer training in January of 2013, I maintained a friendship with Louise, which led to joining PATH’s board in August 2015. I’m thankful to know that there is an organization that is willing to advocate for local nonprofits and use their circle of influence and public relations backgrounds to help raise awareness and support. Tifany considered how much women love to dance, but how rare it is to enjoy a night out with girlfriends dancing. Born in the 18th century, Fulton is famous for inventing the steamboat and designing the first functional submarine – making him a genius as well as a gentleman. After 22 years in the Capital City, I still enjoy visiting our museums, theatres, festivals and parks with my son. To protect patients from infections, all art supplies donated must be new and in original packaging.
Besides, who doesn't love rhinestone embellishments and a stiletto heel at holiday party time? Your generous donation and kind support will make a homeless pet’s life merry and bright.
Last year’s scholarship grand prize winner, soprano Anna Berry, will also perform, as well as a quartet of emerging professional singers from Praeclara, a new performing arts organization based in Little Rock.

We strive to foster an inspiring environment that engages musicians at all levels of performance. The Kristin Lewis Foundation seeks to fill these gaps by providing singers with financial support and exposure to both American and European professional resources.
I'm very honored to be joined onstage by Metropolitan Opera bass-baritone, Kevin Short. This unsuspecting child who gave so much of himself to the project rarely complained about putting those jeans on year after year for his mother.
The cost of admission is $5 with all revenue supporting Women & Children First, a shelter for domestic violence victims. Despite paying for multiple lessons in advance, we were asked not to return by the head instructor because we were so bad and took up too much of the instructor's time. Her music incorporates traditional country roots infused with a youthful vibe that enchants audiences and continues to attract national attention. It's hard to make a movie come together with a lot of big stars"American Hustle director David O Russell talked about actress Jennifer Lawrence's essay about gender-based wage gap in Hollywood. This book was that length and only got through 1940, and Ia€™d already begun to find far more contemporary correspondence than I had ever dreamed. Fifty years later, its ringleader, a twelve-year-old called Kit at the time, recalled the a€?four schoolboys in Baltimore about the year 1902. He soon turned his lunches into an institution called the Three Hours for Lunch Club, and spread its fame through his column, which reported on the cluba€™s personalities, peregrinations through Manhattan eateries, and cross-table banter about books and plays and the people who wrote them a€” often the very same people lunching and yakking with him on a given day.
Then in 1930, the Irregular Decade began: soon after Conan Doylea€™s death in July, Morley was commissioned to write a preface for Doubleday, Dorana€™s forthcoming Complete Sherlock Holmes. And for the truly devoted, books about Sherlock Holmes began to appear a€” best of all, Vincent Starretta€™s immortal Private Life of Sherlock Holmes in 1933.
Let us try, then, to recall the a€™Thirties, and the Founding Year of 1934, before proceeding with this history. They shared the self-confidence and optimism that FDR gave the nation, that the worst was past and things were on the upswing again. They went to the movies constantly, particularly to see, when the stars were all fresh and new, William Powell and Myrna Loy, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart, Laurel & Hardy and W. In fact, between 1936 and 1940, the BSI did not even bother to call a dinner a€” not that that meant the end of Irregular fervor.
It was not possible, for example, to go through Vincent Starretta€™s papers, now at the University of Minnesota Library; they are likely to be a treasure trove of material.
It is interesting to speculate about how Christopher Morley obtained the envelope addressed to Sherlock Holmes [depicted on the programme]. While we know nothing about the program that night, Henry James Forman was present, and it is not too much to suspect that the 1936 dinner was the occasion for his paper a€?The Creator of Holmes in the Flesha€? which appeared a few years later in Vincent Starretta€™s BSI anthology 221B: Studies in Sherlock Holmes (Macmillan, 1940). It is enough to learn a€” however great the shock upon first seeing the word a€” that Edgar W.
They started the organization to raise awareness, education and support for a variety of issues by bringing women together at fun and simple events.
Jon spent almost 10 years traveling – creating art not only in Arkansas, but also in Tennessee, Jamaica, Hawaii, Haiti and Miami. A few years later, I moved home and when it was time for Eggshibition 2013, I jumped at the opportunity to participate again. Each year, I'm stretched as an artist to imagine what this big oblong thing COULD become.
PATH also has a dedicated network of volunteers who speak truth, hope and encouragement to victims who have been deceived, who lack hope and need courage to be who they were created to be. Events like the Ignite Action Heart Ball fund lifesaving research and advancements in technology.
The Sweetheart program is designed to teach young women about heart disease and stroke, the No. I know how that trauma affects us and drastically influences the way we manage life or fail to manage it without the right treatment. PATH partners with UAMS, who is working to develop interventions to combat or undo the long-term effects of trauma on the brain. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.
Last year, ACH received more than 100,000 wishes from every county in the state and nearly every state in the country. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree, she continued with her Master of Music studies at the University of Tennessee. Confined to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), I sat at my tiny son’s side for two excruciating months.
We are thankful he shares his gifts and talents with the Children’s Tumor Foundation in our efforts to advance the mission to end NF.
After moving to Little Rock, she worked on Congressman Vic Snyder’s campaign and spent three years working in the Arkansas House of Representatives.
He would be the ultimate dance partner, and I would never pass up the opportunity to look up at his handsome face.
The fun event will features live music, free pizza and Frosty Treats ice cream and T-shirts for all participants. The SSP is an organization with members from other AZA accredited zoos that makes breeding and companionship recommendations for endangered animals. Recently, Jennifer hit out against sexism in the film industry in a blunt essay on October 13 for an online feminist newsletter.
The deal was struck in a Manhattan speakeasy a€?somewhere in the Fifties,a€? as Morley stood at the bar with a few fellow Holmes-devotees from Doubleday. They spent a good deal to dress smartly a€” double-breasted suits and silk frocks, de rigeur gloves and hats, in a time when people dressed up just to go out shopping. But for the a€™Thirties we have scant records, mainly memories, fragile and fugitive things.
Another very important Baker Street Irregular of the era, Elmer Davis, was a public figure, and his papers may rest in some library or archive.
Richard Lancelyn Greena€™s book Letters to Sherlock Holmes (Penguin, 1985) says that the Abbey National Building Society in Baker Street had begun to receive mail addressed to Holmes the year before, and it may be that this particular specimen was sent to Morley by Archie Macdonell, of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, or by his brother Frank, working in that city at Faber & Faber. He pleaded and promised himself to do do it, and he got it inside the entrails of the Goose somehow, so that when it was carved (by me) it appeared as phaenomenon. Watson, whose cover-ups, uncorrected typographical errors, lapsa lingua, and fumbling-stumblings are the very meat and bone that have made the Higher Criticism possible for Sherlockians of all scions, races, creeds, and colors.
But it is Lellenberg who ties this melange together, whose annotations are indeed copious, and also informative, witty, and exhaustive. He returned to Arkansas in 2012 and is pursuing a career in real estate to support his love for creating works of art out of anything he discovers.
