...John Carter and I spent all morning at the Cody Museum doing still photography for us to set up the filming for COWBOYS in a month. You know, interesting point, I was very closely looking at the Arvo Ajala "Paladin" holster and I was surprised it was more of a "working" holster than I expected it to be. Not nearly as finely made (maybe I shouldn't be surprised here) as the Alfonso replicas I've handled.
I also spent some time studying Buffalo Bill's Stetson hats...I realize this makes me some kind boring fanboy, but hey, how many times do you have a chance to do something like that?
BTW, Frank James did a wonderful rant over at CORN, BEANS, SPENT BRASS, AN EMPTY PAGE & A DEADLINE yesterday:
I personally believe, and it is a sincere belief on my part, this whole movement to create a national identity card (Have you renewed your driver's license recently?) is nothing more than a totalitarian move (supported by both Repubs and Demorats) to 'track' each and every American. Or at least establish the means for future tracking through use of mandated cards and technology. Am I being paranoid? Probably, but is this concern unreasonable?
More importantly, my question is, How do these measures fight the war on Terror? How do they make US safer?Read the whole thing.
