An Update on The Thin Man Discussion

Unread postby Liz » Tue Jan 17, 2012 11:58 am

Inspector DITHOT and I have been investigating all leads on possible tidbits for the discussion. And we've lined up enough suspects to get us through the first 3 weeks of February (beginning January 30).

We are asking you, Noodlemantras, to report for official duty to help us solve this mysterious case beginning Monday, February 20. Your absence will definitely throw a cloud of suspicion on you, so don’t be late!

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

OOOOh! That's lovely! Suspects -- what a great idea! And, you have helped focus me. I'd grown slothful, a regular layabout. :blush:

I finished the book with copious notes in the margins. Also watched the Thin Man movie. I can scarcely wait for another discussion to begin! :applause2:

The edge … there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. HST
