Our good friend and Member from UAE and India, Kumar Bhatia “Bobbie,” remembers the global reach and potential of Doctor Watson and Mr Holmes and sends this poignant thought:
Dear Friends and Fellow Watsonians:
Extremely sad and, indeed, terrible news about the shooting down of the Malaysian Airlines flight.
See what Sherlock Holmes had to say, more than 125 years ago:
“What object is served by this circle of misery and violence and fear? It must tend to some end, or else our universe is ruled by chance, which is unthinkable.”
Thank you, Bobbie, for your thoughts and for reminding us of the enduring hope of a better humanity in the Canon.
