June 11, 2003
I got a heads up from one of our subscribers that the August issue of Wild West magazine is out and they did the Wyatt Earp in a Peoria whore house article a month after us but they have used the word “pimp” on the cover. Interesting, considering all the debate on our staff, or, as the subscriber put it, “A body would have to be the village idiot to believe the use of the word ‘pimp’ on the WW cover was a mere coincidence since you made a strong case for the use of it in your journal.”

Our August issue is at the printer and we shifted gears and went with the “Digging Up Billy” cover. It will be interesting to see if Wild West follows us there also. Since they’re obviously reading this journal, here’s our immediate plans for the fall:

• “Wyatt Earp Was Gay And We Have The Photos to Prove It.” (I’m dong a cover painting of Wyatt and Doc cuddling on a couch)

• “‘I Surrendered Like The Wimp I Am’: the True Story of Davy Crocket at The Alamo.”

• “Shocking New DNA Results Prove Historians Have Been Wrong for 122 Years! Brushy Bill Was Billy The Kid.”

Well, maybe one or two of those is an exaggeration (but not the Historians Have Been Wrong part).
