  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Holmes and Moriarity by tucsonmike on 12 March 2006 4:35am
I am toying with this for a story idea. Moriarity has a cover. He is underneath the polished manner the tough Irish boy and he uses some of his ill gotten gains to help Irish rebels in Victorian times.

No, I am not trying to restart the troubles singlehandedly. I am just toying with it. Looking for input on feasibility...

Hmmmm.... Might have possibilities. BTW, tonight on PBS, Rupert Everett is playing Holmes - I really have hopes that it will be the wonderful casting that I expect it to be. I think that this may be the role he was born to play.

We saw it last week. This week is pledge week here. We are lucky though. KUAT is an excellent station and very responsive to the community.

Ironically, 60 Minutes just had a show on about a major Boston gangster from the neighborhood Elaine is from named Whitey Bulger. One of his big things was gun running and money for the IRA. Whitey's brother, Billy on the other hand is a classical scholar, former President of the Massachusetts Senate and Provost of the University of Massachusetts. I never thought of getting the idea of Moriarty from Whitey Bulger. I thought more in terms of Irish history in Victorian times.

The 60 Minute Interview.

The Official FBI Poster. Only Osama bin Laden has a higher profile with them.

I brought this back up, because a publisher I met at the conference actually wants to see this.

Well I started writing it. I even roped my friend and Toastmasters club number two Liz into it as a character. I stayed home sick from work today (yes I have another cold and sore throat and wrote). It is growing that is for sure.
