June 16, 2008
Got an assignment from the Arizona Republic to write an op-ed piece on cowboy statesmanship. Rep. Jake Flake passed away recently and there was this outpouring of love and respect for the longtime rancher and legislator. I'm playing with the idea of having a checkerboard of portraits of typical Arizona cowboys, kind of like this:

Although a rough, I think you can spot the Navajo cowboy and the vaquero (upper right, lower right). The Navajo Ka-boys have a great style. Very distinctive and original. The vaqueros used to have an even cooler style but they lost it sometime after the revolution and now they just wear Resistols and Adidas knockoffs. Not sure why, but it's a sad slide of classic style.

A man is recovering from heart surgery when a nurse asks him how he is feeling. 'I'm O. K. but I didn't like the four-letter-word the doctor used in surgery,' he answered.

'What did he say,' asked the nurse.


I finally start my cardio rehab this Thursday. Looking forward to it.
