Horse Sense, Whatever That Means
“Before we go on,” Bernie said, “a little controversy has broken out down below.”
“Down below?” said Lt. Stine. “What the hell are you talking about?”
“Horses,” Bernie said. “The usual story is that horses went extinct in North America around 13,000 BC, which just happens to be when the first humans came over the Bering land bridge. See where I’m headed with this?”
“Nope,” said Lt. Stine. I was with him. I remembered a perp named Bering who we’d put away some time ago, but he’d been in a backroom poker game when we nabbed him, not on a bridge. I yawned, a nice big one.
“But now it turns out there’s a countervailing view,” Bernie said.
Lt. Stine blinked a few times. That always tells me that the human brain is getting overloaded – yes, it can happen. “Bernie?” he said. “Can we get back to the knife?”
