  1. That sounds similar to Ellery Queen, who wasn’t a single person! Apropos the Nancy Drew universe, here in New Zealand we have a brand of ginger beer known as ‘Hardieboys’ – which isn’t a Nancy Drew reference but the actual surname of the company founder. I can’t look at the label without thinking of the Nancy Drew stories, though.

  2. I read all the old Nancy Drews. I remember when I was a kid and I began reading the reboot series. I thought, wow, this lady is old. Now I know. lol

    Also, great article on the mob mentality online.
