July 14, 2003
Got a good write up in Sunday’s Arizona Republic on the Digging Up Billy issue. Good and bad press is always welcome.

The actor Marty Cove who I mentioned yesterday gave me a couple publicity photos at Willcox. Here’s him with Kevin Costner on the set of Wyatt Earp. I think the photo was taken at Cook’s Ranch, south of Santa Fe. Kathy and I visited the set, the day after Thanksgiving, 1993.

Odd connections: My therapist at the time vacationed in Santa Fe and his next door neighbor was the set designer on the movie and he ended up ordering 90 of my Illustrated Life & Times of Wyatt Earp books as gifts for the crew (they spent $1.5 million re-designing the movie town streets to replicate Dodge City and Tombstone). He asked me if I ever wanted anything to call him and I said, “I’d love to visit the set.”

Tonight on CNN, writer and friend Howard Bryan will be interviewed on the Billy dig. It’s supposedly running right after Larry King Live. Also, today is the day they're supposed to dig up Billy's mom.
