Today is the anniversary of the shootout at the OK Corral in Tombstone, AZ between the Earp brothers and the Clanton gang. None of these were real solid citizens, but this “battle” haunts us to this day with cowboy legend. I loved movie westerns growing up. Having Native friends has tempered this somewhat. I was surprised to hear that one of Husband’s Native colleagues likes nothing better than to vegetate and watch westerns while lying in bed.
Virgil Earp was supposedly the real hero in this incident but Wyatt got all the credit about it because he wrote a book about it. This seems unfair to me, but I never had any siblings. I wonder what Virgil thought about it?
What is your favorite western movie or novel? How are things with you and your siblings?
