Detectives

October 30, 2010


Detectives. They are an iconic figure in American literature. You see them in movies, television. Read them in crime novels. But I’ve never met one. Don’t know anyone whose ever met one. (I’m not talking about police detectives.) How do you become one? I’ve never seen a course offered in a college. Are they a totally fictional creation? Like  Godzilla. Bogart was my favourite. James Garner as Rockford was a close second. To me a detective is like an angel of God. He operates in a totally different world than other human beings. Without super powers. Only his whits. And women are his big downfall. I wonder. Did Dante write about them?
