More feedback on the latest issue:

"I figured you were anxiously awaiting my email about this month’s TW. I got it Saturday afternoon and finished it Saturday afternoon. It is always excellent and this is no exception. Don’t beat yourself up about the way you taught your kids history. We all screw up something. My favorite is teaching my sons to fish. I love trout fishing in the North Georgia Mountains. Try teaching that to a 6yr old. A catfish pond would have been a lot better.

"I do agree completely with the man who said 'when the legend becomes fact, print the legend'. I got my interest in history from John Wayne, Walt Disney’s Davy Crockett The Son’s of Liberty and Gone With the Wind and my Dad and five uncles fighting in WW II. I love studying American History and especially The West. Your TW Mag is a great source for western history."

That's him jumping over the hitching rail, and that's his co-star at right. Stay tuned, we'll have a photo and an update after lunch.

"It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing."
—Mark Rothko
