Is Wyatt Earp Still A Hero?

 July 22, 2021

   I was in the corral on October 26, 1981. That was for the centennial. Now here we are coming up on the 140th anniversary of the gunfight behind the O.K. Corral. A whole lot of water has churned under that bridge.

Daily Whip Out: "Wyatt In Shadow"

Expect major coverage you know where. If you want to contribute your two cents, send me your take on: Is Wyatt Earp still a hero? Keep it short (100 words) and send it to me at

"A large group of Karens is called a Homeowner's Association."

    I certainly think he’s a hero, of the old west. If he’s not, who is? As they say “When you have to choose between history and legend, print the legend” it’s been great fun for me trying to learn both!

  2. Wyatt Earp walked into the fire and put his life itself at close risk in tow of friendship and kinship. Is there a better definition of the word?

    Bob, I saw you on Discovery documentary three days ago and your name took me back 25 years. I googled you and found all this cool stuff. You were great on the radio and so many fond memories. Where do you hang out in Cave Creek? I would love to buy you a drink and meet you. Sherwin (like the paint)

  4. Wyatt Earp, “ brave, courageous and bold,” will
    always be my hero. Sure, he was no saint, but don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.
    Next to the Cowboys gang, Wyatt, brothersVirgil and Morgan, along with Doc Holliday, were a band of angels. The Cowboys terrorized both sides of the border with their robbing, rustling, and rampaging. Their bloody deeds were not good for business in Tombstone, and I took the Earps and Holliday to finally tame that town.
    In today’s upside down world, cops are the bad guys and robbers are the good ones. Cops are handcuffed while criminals go free. Law and order has been thrown out the window as cops have been thrown under the bus. There are gunfights in the streets of major cities. Washington D.C. has become like Dodge City.
    If ever there was a time for Wyatt Earp, it is now. Poor Wyatt must be turning over in his grave.
