She Had A Mouth On Her

March 14, 2019
   I've been doing research on Sharlot Hall and I got this interesting insight from a certain 90-year-old wordsmith:

     "Sharlot was a cruelly crippled and sublimely (think Elizabeth Barrett Browning) constricted passionate poet/cusser, who if necessary donned a cactus spine hat and a sheet copper dress to dissuade a cabal of Back East male asshole politicians in Congress from naming her beloved land 'Gadsonia' and imprisoning it as a vast county of New Mexico reporting to another cabal of Far West male asshole politicians in the capitol building at Santa Fe?
  "Then, should you put word or image onto paper, be sure to use a Z in the English Elizabeth and an S in the Germanic form of the name.  Lesser journalists have gotten this wrong."
—DD the Wordsmith

   So, I am given to understand the little lady "had a mouth on 'er."

    My Mother always said Sharlot was a weird woman. I reminded her that all the women in our family were/are weird!
