Interestingly, the "Cowboys" of Cochise County, Arizona, was a real gang of outlaws operating out of Tombstone, a real town. It's famous of course because of the legendary gunfight at OK Corral in 1881, between Wyatt Earp and his brothers, and members of that gang, who identified themselves by...
Her name is Maria Georgieva, and I have known her for over 20 years. I last saw Mimi in 2008 just after I began writing at RedState. Their baby, Georgi, was only two or three then. Now her children are 20,18 and 14. For Many Easters I would send...
