September 18, 2007
Got a haircut from Bev last night ($20 cash). Caught up on the local gossip. One of my neighbors has admitted pumping 15,000 gallons of ground water a day to keep his horse arena dust free. Really disgusting to say the least.

Today we shot six episodes of a new segment for the Outdoor Channel. Tentative title: "The True West Gunfight of The Week." Taped across the street from the True West offices and at my studio. Finished at two and came back to the office.

George Joe, a Navajo publisher, dropped by yesterday to pick my brain about his publication (Res Biz). He has read my business bio and thought I might give him some advice and courage. A worthy project. He's attempting to give Native Americans examples of success and hope. I asked him what the name for hope is in Navajo, and told him that should be the title of his paper.

Music To My Ears
"My husband, John, and I went to see 3:10 to Yuma because it was in your magazine. We went with my brother and sister-in-law and really enjoyed it. Thanks for the mention since we NEVER go to the movies anymore."

More Kid Krazy Korrespondence
"I'm not asking for your journalist friend to be hanged, drawn and quartered. It's just there are things that irritate me and sloppiness is one of them. Mr. Sharpe was sloppy. So I feel at liberty to take him to task for it.

"I know that to the big wide world it doesn't matter a damn. If it isn't being used to wrap vegetables, the paper with his story in it is probably already being recycled. Maybe you're right and folks are shaking their heads and wondering why I bother. I don't care. Sloppy is still sloppy and false is still false and I'm not minded to apologise for saying so.

"I'm glad you liked the new book. Let me know if you find any sloppy bits in it."
