What Would Professor Moriarty Think of This?

"The usual Irish way of doing things"...

“The usual Irish way of doing things”, an 1871 caricature by Thomas Nast (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

My friend Loretto posted this on Michael Palin‘s website.  It is from a Swiss magazine.


It has some nasty things about the Irish.  I had not seen any sort of major anti-Irish feeling recently.  You can almost imagine a 21st Century version of the Thomas Nast cartoons.

You can bet Professor Moriarty would have something to say about this.



About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
