Tom Mix

He killed himself in a car crash  seventy years ago today, not far from Florence, Arizona.

Tom Mix, Texas native, working cowboy,  marshall, Texas Ranger, veteran of the nation's wars.

Ayup.

Don't you just hate the revisionist nitpickers who re-edited that bio from Tom's  press agent? Pennsylvania kid. Army deserter. Most heroic military and/or law enforcement  position held: drum major.

I got clacked hard in the noggin by a loose boom-box that was in the car when we got rolled by the 16 wheeler semi-truck. Now I anchor every thing down when I'm travelling.
