Today we observed St. Patricks Day in the Fort Worth Stockyards, in ways only Texans can: with a cattle drive and a shootout. Myself, I don’t own a gun and have no interest in such. But this is Texas, a gun culture prevails, so there are times when there’s no getting around a gunfight. A century (or more) ago, the Stockyards were the red light district of Fort Worth. They say Wyatt Earpe made occasional visits from Kansas. Perhaps to visit the… ah… ladies of negotiable affections. Or gamble. Or both.
