Hey, Buffalo Grill, what did you grill, Buffalo Grill?

September 23 2015
   My research here in France is revealing tantalizing clues regarding the murder of Vincent van Gogh. Buffalo Bill created a huge cultural impact in the City of Lights when he landed here with his show in 1889. Kids started wearing fringe jackets and big hats. His influence can still be seen in Paris.

  1. Bob, when I was in high school and took French as my foreign language, My teacher rewarded me for being a good student with a fat comic book from France (in French, of course) featuring Buffalo Bill. It's title was something like "Buffalo Bill and the Far West Adventurers." I wish I still had that comic book, but I think it was among the cowboy and other such things my mother threw out, fearing I might become a gunslinger or the like.
