Wyatt Earp, Looking For A Fight?

November 15, 2011

Got caught in DMV hell this morning (Department of Motor Vehicles). Had to get my driver's license renewed. Actually, not as bad as in the past, but still, that department can suck the life force out of a death star.

Went home for lunch and whipped out a drawing of Wyatt Earp informing a certain group of cowboys that they have been looking for a fight and now they can have it:

This is a fight I have studied all my life, but I sometimes wonder if all our scholarship is flawed. And, I have to agree with Errol Morris:

"We falsely interpret the world around us. We ignore evidence that doesn't support our prior beliefs and we convince ourselves we know things we don't. We think we know things we don't know."
—Errol Morris, reviewing Stephen King's new book, 11•22•63
