Very quiet in office. Gus out sick, R.G. on vacation, Mike, Ted, Larry and Dave Daiss down at Festival of the West setting up our tent and booth. I was able to finish Classic Gunfights and lay it out. McCubbin’s photos look great. Going to run the beautiful soiled dove Bessie Colvin as a full page.
Went to lunch with Carole at House of Joy ($9 cash). Good talking with her.
In the afternoon I worked on July editorial. Deals with the new Wyatt Earp material and how it forces us to reconsider his controversial life. There are those who hate this. Here’s a typical response (I got this last night): “I hear you are broadcasting all over Arizona that Wyatt Earp was an evil man. How about a more balanced approach or we will start a campaign about the ‘Pimp from Cave Creek’ Pimping that non western magazine- True Worst. ‘Wyatt Earp Scholar?’ give me a break. More like comic book clown! Yours for more history and less BS.”
“I’m happy, but every clown is.”
