Virgil Earp In Prescott And The Earps In Arizona

June 27, 2020
   We've got a good, in depth, story coming up in True West on Virgil Earp's time in Prescott, Arizona. Wyatt's older brother landed in the Mile High City a couple times and we've got the goods.

   So, I've been noodling some cover ideas.

   Daily Whip Out: "Virgil In Prescott"

   Another angle into the story which will broaden the issue a bit, is to include Wyatt's controversial episode of standing off a mob in the Johnny-Behind-the-Deuce embroglio.

Daily Whip Out:
"Wyatt Earp vs. A Tombstone Mob"

And, then there's the painting I did yesterday which could also work.

Daily Whip Out:
"The Law Is Just A Suggestion With A Gun."

Here's a statue I'd like to see:

Daily Whip Out:
"Cara del Caballo" (Horse Face)

   And here's one of our favorite one-eyed captivos.

Daily Whip Out: 
"Mickey's Head In The Clouds

      And, here's the view on my walk this morning.

   Still looking a little bleak over there, but the monsoons are on the way and we are hoping for some healing in our neighborhood.

"There's a vast difference between thinking critically about the past, for the sake of learning from it, and behaving destructively toward the past, with the aim of erasing it."
—Bret Stephens in The New York Times, on the tearing down of statues
