The Bad Man from Arizona Cashes In

January 13, 2012

It was on this date in 1929 that a certain gambler known in his day as the "Bad Man from Arizona" cashed in his chips. Here's a sneak peek at my next editorial:

Working on a Texas Rangers vs. Kiowa warriors fight known as The Lost Valley Fight. This is for Classic Gunfights in April. Using Bob Alexander's book "Winchester Warriors" which I highly recommend. Bob alerted me to Rick Miller's forthcoming biography of the Texas Ranger commander of that fight, John B. Jones. Going to be talking to him as well. Love researching the researchers on these fights. I always learn something I didn't know.

Woke up with buyer's remorse. May pass on the Bird.

Worked this morning on sketches of miners and ethnic types on the frontier. It's in the cheek bones, man.

Did four of them this morning and the fifth I did last week (bottom, right).

"I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one."
—Bill Moyers, attributing the quote to a friend of his
