Wrong Town

The Ataltanta bookstore in Old Bisbee has wire racks outside that hold the newspapers which are for sale. In order to keep them from blowing away, the stack of papers in each rack is anchored by a rock.

There was a guy dressed in period 1880s costume – a black suit, white shirt, and bolo hat – as the Tombstone docents do. This guy was talking to one of the Bisbee locals.

As I got closer I saw him toss his hat into one of the newspaper bins, and I heard him say, “I am tired of tourists taking my picture.”
