The Vicious Little Cop Killer

October 20, 2015
   Last night I was watching the second half of the "Billy the Kid: New Evidence" show on Nat Geo when our house guest said, "He was nothing more than a vicious little cop killer." I realized at that moment we shouldn't hold our breath for a Billy book from the talented author (hint: she's a policeman's daughter) who gave us both "Doc" and "Epitaph."

Daily Whip Out: "The Kid and His Silver City Pards."

    Here is our house guest with Kathy this morning.

Kathy and Mary Doria Russell

   Afterwards, I drove her over to Ken Amorosano's house to do a taping for our documentary on Wyatt Earp In Hollywood: The Untold Story. Mary was in Tombstone the other day for a book signing when the accidental gunfight broke out on Allen Street and two people were wounded by actual gunfire. I have to say it was a tad ironic when the mayor of Tombstone said the shooting was "unprecedented." As the home of the O.K. Corral street fight, I don't that is true.

  1. I knew you'd love the Tombstone shootout news!

    Tell Mary that I really loved " Doc". And I just started "Epitaph" last night.

  2. Bob, I know that are attention is now on the alleged recently discovered photo of Billy the Kid and friends. But whatever happened with the alleged photo of Doc Holliday Ms. Russell and you were talking about not long ago?

  3. Yes, Mary and I talked a little bit about getting her photo out there to get an appraisal, etc. Hope she does. I think the photo is fantastic.
