Remember the Wickenburg Woman who wrote me complaining about my Wyatt Earp comments on the History Channel? You know, the one who said, “I saw you interviewed on the program, and I have to say I was very disgusted with your left-wing spin.” And then this: “I have a couple of books that were autographed by you in Tombstone back in the 1990's. I think I would like to return them to you. I will have to figure out how to do that. I do not want them on my bookshelf here in Wickenburg, Arizona, anymore.”
So, after Mickey Free went out the door last Thursday I wrote her back:
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have been on deadline for a major project and we just finished.
Regarding bias as it regards history, all I have ever wanted to know is the truth. Regarding Wyatt Earp I didn't say anything on the show that isn't in my books. If you'd still like to send them back to me you may do so at:

P.S. And, for the record, I'm a registered Independent, not a Liberal
End of my email. I got this reply this morning:
“Well, I guess you never did know what you were talking about then. Like my husband said, ‘It is not worth the time, money, nor the postage to return those books.’ I agree. So, I will just move your books to the shelf with all the other great opinionists like Richard E. Erwin and John Pleasant Gray (just to name a few.) I will not bother to pick up a copy of True West magazine anymore. You should consider renaming it.”
How about "The Magazine That Makes People Who Believe In Myths Angry"?
Buddy Boze Hatkiller is at his new home for a tryout. They have three acres, two horses and six kids, and another dog. We're hoping they get along, for Buddy's sake.
Meanwhile, one of my neighbors (the same one who demanded that I put both my dogs down) called the marshal's office and filed a complaint because Buddy got out of the yard over the weekend and was lying in the road. I will not be nominating him for Cave Creek Neighbor of The Year.
It's funny. We moved out here to get away from city slickers like him.
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
—Thomas Jefferson 1802
