We've got some weird trends going right now.
Thanks to a request from Jill Kuehny of the Caldwell, Kansas Historical Society I found an original board of Wild Bill in Kansas that I thought they might like for a show next week and I gave it another go.

"Wild Bill In The Crosshairs"
This piece is in my "Wild Bill: The First Gunfighter" book on page 60 if you want to see what I changed and improved.
Big, clunky quarter horses, blinged out cowgirls who look more like eighties Madonna. Somehow, some of our southern neighbors have stayed more true to their original style.

Flair and panache never goes out of style.
Nobody In Particular
I was quite astounded— almost dumbfounded—by the new movie "Nobody" starring Bob Odenkirk, a comedian in an action movie?! After hearing some decent buzz and being a fan of "Better Call Saul" Kathy and I bit the bullet and paid for the viewing—$19.99!—last night. And, man oh, man, is that some fast and furious storytelling. Totally outrageous, quick cuts and the obligatory family falling apart, but very believable and then it goes to full-blown ridiculous in a Jackie Chan, over the top, cartoon violent, choreography, kind-of-way. I laughed and laughed until I cried. It was cathartic. The perfect movie for these pre-post-pandemic times. I expect we'll see more of Nobody.
“We had a star that was willing to put in all this hard work and prep like crazy for such a long time [a reported two years!]. I think the only person who was worried about the action was Bob, because I knew it was going to be great.”
