speaking of the saturday club

i learn that holmes dubbed the boston state house as the "hub of the solar system." which led by extension to boston being dubbed "the hub of the universe."

holmes: "the jaunty-looking person... said there was one more wise man's saying that he had heard; it was about our place—but he didn't know who said it.... 'boston state-house is the hub of the solar system. you couldn't pry that out of a boston man if you had the tire of all creation straightened out for a crow-bar.'"



whatever happened to protesting nothing in particular, just protesting cause it's saturday and there's nothing else to do?
