The name is Holmes, Grytpype Holmes, accompanied by my faithful man and woman servant, Gladys. (Don’t do that I tell you! Gladys, you may be my wife, but even so, some things remain sacred. -Gad, Herc, since when have you been religious? Since I took over the typewriter.) Please welcome my assistant, Count Jim Moriarty Watson, MD, PhD, BS, MS, TWIT and Web’s Wonder. -Web’s Wonder? -Oh yes, he’s got lettuce after his name!
