Here’s news from a True West Maniac in Hawaii:

"Lew and I are in Hawaii with no tv and no radio, so we rent movies and watch everything on the DVD. We were watching ‘Young Guns’ again and enjoyed very much the BTK documentary with you, Leon Metz and a couple of other western historians. Your artwork was a great addition to the piece. We also laughed ourselves silly at the commentary by Lou Diamond Phillips and two of the other cast members. The movie doesn't seem old until you realize what the cast members look like now, does it?"

Yes, it has been 18 years. Doesn’t seem possible. Much of John Fusco's classic still stands, but the one part that I cringed at when I re-watched it recently was the peyote sequence. Which reminds me of. . .
