Description

Dumb the populace down and you can sell anything. Who needs Chopin and Mozart when you've got Britney Spears, Michael Bolton and Kenny G? Why dine on penne con fungi when Hamburger Helper and Hungry Man frozen dinners are available? Got white merlot to sell, no problem! Got a war to sell, no problem! Fill the local news broadcasts with the latest celebrity gossip, NASCAR results and fear of foreigners, all the while repeating "Shut up and shop!," the preferred subliminal command. Provide Mammoth-sized shopping carts to transport the oversized haul to the gargantuan SUV, the only thing large enough to deliver the inflated modern day shopper and its truckload of heavily processed food. ..."Obey and consume!" As with the relationship between the Morlocks and the Eloi, keep the populace placated, well fed, and most importantly, dumbed-down and supreme power is yours, at least that's the view of Sherlock Holmes' latest villain. But is it too late? Can the horror be stopped? Is the Red State plague (RSP) the great pestilence that will finally erode the American fabric? So, you mean Puccini isn't a green vegetable? Is recruiting Sherlock Holmes, with his stunning powers of deduction, the answer? Can Holmes find the culprit, a ruthless culture-thief, and rescue the US? In Kenneth Frawley s new book, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Missing American Culture revel in the fascinating, side-splitting story of America s cultural distress and how the legendary Victorian detective Sherlock Holmes is recruited to rescue a distraught nation. Inventive and satirical, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Missing American Culture is an influential work of modern fiction that compels readers to put in the open their own values and ponder American culture, and the roles its corporate and political entities have had upon it. With a welcome comeback of the celebrated detective and his trusted friend, Dr. Watson, the book is a literary tour de force seen through the eyes of Frawley with his perceptive and relevant assessment of American culture."
