    I believe Andrew C.McCarthy was the lead prosecutor
    in the 1993 case.

    You can bet your patootie he has given Blair a scorching
    piece of his mind via personal communication.

    WTF is Blair thinking anyway?!

    Well, you sure did pick one of the great things about England. But if you leave out Westminster Abbey, your list is woefully incomplete!

    Btw, I just saw a Canadian TV version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, starring Matt Frewer and Kenneth Welsh. It's sometimes hard to enjoy a non- Rathbone Holmes, but this one was very well done. Holmes took some getting used to, but Watson was a delight. The scenery/sets of the Baskerville Estate were the best I've seen.

    I would love to see that! Actually I love the Jeremy Brett Holmes, which was the BBC series that did the entire canon. Matt Frewer is a good actor, so that must be great.

    Westminster Abbey is awesome! I've been there several times. Once I was shocked to literally walk across Charles Darwin's grave. I didn't know he was buried there.

    Brett was really good, wasn't he? Very commanding. I did think that Frewer was a rather strange Holmes. It's hard to explain, though. Watson was great because he wasn't a bumbling idiot like in the Rathbone movies. Anyway, we bought this version in a store called "FYE". I don't know how widespread that store is, but if you want more info. from the package, just PM me.

    Isn't the Abbey wonderful? It's the reason for my screen name. :)

    Here is a small excerpt from Darwin's memorial service:

    "...the Bishop of Carlisle, Harvey Goodwin, in a memorial sermon preached in the Abbey on the Sunday following the funeral, said “I think that the interment of the remains of Mr Darwin in Westminster Abbey is in accordance with the judgment of the wisest of his countrymen…It would have been unfortunate if anything had occurred to give weight and currency to the foolish notion which some have diligently propagated, but for which Mr Darwin was not responsible, that there is a necessary conflict between a knowledge of Nature and a belief in God…”.

    Thanks, that's the most useful thing I've read on this board.

    Well hey, nobody's coming into your home and tying you to the chair in front of the computer screen.
