Thursday on Thursday, no.10

"Perhaps policeman is a relative term. In an evolutionary sense the ape fades so gradually into the policeman, that I myself can never detect the shade. The monkey is only the policeman that may be. Perhaps a maiden lady on Clapham Common is only the policeman that might have been."
- Gabriel Syme, in GKC's The Man Who Was Thursday
