Suddenly not so hungry anymore. Thanks for kicking in my rampant paranoia...

Yeah, turns out Pyro assumed Muslims because "There is a huge rift between Americans and Muslims at the moment," which is a faulty assumption on several points.

A) He's lumping all Muslims together.
B) My previous post.


No, I am not lumping all of them, I'm just saying that it could be possible, because I know that most are innocent, maybe only a really angry one could go this far.

My theory has been proven wrong- I now think, of all the horrendous things in the world, it's a religious fanatic- a Christian.

And as for the Muslims- sorry to have offended you guys, and maybe I shouldn't have been watching Morgan Spurlock's 30 days, the episode about a Christian in Muslim Shoes....

Hey, man. I sorta started this, and I should have known better.

In any case, let's drop the issue for now. It's likely the religion is an excuse for these actions witch are really all some big plot. Or something. I dunno, it's just a better story that way.

I've just made a couple of comments on the latest post.

The event is happening tonight, people. If there's anything to want to bring to monsieur poirot's attention, do it NOW.

I just hope he's already taken the necessary steps.

I don't want to tell him how to do his job, but considering he's attending the event, if things go wrong, he may in fact perish, and then we're in trouble.

Edit: Monsieur Poirot has responded! I'M HELPING!

It looks like the bomb was intended to arrive via cake. In approx 15 mins, the cake will arrive, according to monsieur Poirot as of writing. Of course, the police will be waiting, so hopefully all will turn out well.

Does the name 'Enrico Vespucci' mean anything to anyone? That's the name of our prime suspect. Only thing google turned up was a random facebook page, and I'm pretty sure that's not our man.

Doesn't matter, it's already solved. He got arrested. The detonation method was never mentioned, but it could have been anything.

Just suggested the Monsieur Poirot might wish to consider a second meeting with Holmes, as well as suggesting one of us acting as go-between for the arrangements (After Holmes' case wraps up-he might not want to be distracted at present). I don't know if anyone is in the NY area to physically attend, but I figured I'd try and set the wheels in motion. Perhaps someone better acquainted with Mr. Holmes might be ideal.

edit:To clarify, this person would only physically attend if both participants agree.

Thanks. Monsieur Poirot has (as of now) not responded to my missive. Let's not jump the gun. are you able to physically attend the meeting? Assuming they want you there-but it would be good to have a peacemaker and someone who can lay out the theory of an antagonist (likely Moriarty) attempting to play them off against each other. and perhaps drawing attention to Cinderella's case.

No. I don't know if we have anyone in NY. I'm not bad at getting Holmes to respond to me, though, so I left a message for him. I'll post if there is some response.

Might be an idea to point him to Poirot's own response to that meeting, in that case. Perhaps-

Wait.

Wait.

Looking at Holmes' invitation he's received, it refers to a 'Pride Masquerade Ball'. You don't think that's the event Poirot is attending, by any chance? Especially since it mentions a delay due to an 'unforseen security issue'...

The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

I've just noted the connection to both of them. due to security, Holmes isn't going to be allowed in-but if Poirot vouches for him, then they can hopefully catch the guilty man.

Hopefully they can work together in the interests of justice!
