It was based on paper written by J.T. Crammond for a meeting of the Parallel Case of St Louis scion society.
Mr. Crammond's paper was titled 'Can we trust the Canon?' Of course it was done as Playing the Game.
While his paper is not the discussion here, someone falling the meeting on Facebook stated that 'he' never trusted Watson. His statement was, "John, I've always been of the opinion that you cannot trust Watson. However, I've never really considered it when it comes to The Canon itself."
To me that statement doesn't seem possible how can you, One; not trust Watson. Two; if you don't or do, how can you have either without the context of the Canon.
We went back and forth a little on this without him really backing up his comment, but in the end he suggested that a back and forth reply on Facebook was not the venue he wanted to explore the topic.
I look forward to him following it up somewhere else.
What are your thoughts? Do you 'trust' Watson?
I will fill in my thoughts latter in the day.
Let me know yours.
