and another one bites the dust
>Detective Brown's death is a great loss," said Idaville Police Commissioner Rupert "Bugs" Meany, a longtime critic of Brown's unorthodox investigative technique who nevertheless appeared to be shaken by the murder. "Thanks to him, Idaville has the highest arrest-to-conviction-due-to-obscure-trivia rate in the nation. I believe I speak for everyone in Idaville when I say that Encyclopedia Brown was truly the greatest sleuth in sneakers."
I don't believe anything Meany says. He's wanted Brown dead since they were kids.
And really, how does the town bully and village idiot grow up to be Police Commissioner anyhow? Hello, corruption!
I think I'll take this case on as soon as I finish The Case Of The Missing Blogger.
RIP, Detective Brown.
