Math is not my strong suit..
Sun May 22, 14:17

But I'm pretty sure what the host was calling "this question" was actually 13 questions...

I used a couple of different inflation calculators I found online, and although there were some wide fluctuations, $32,000 in 1958 would be worth about $320,000 today. An impressive feat - that took a lot of knowledge, a cool head on live television and a great memory (at 79 years old no less).

Thanks for sharing :)

            Karen, I kind of dimly remembered seeing this article when I was doing research on Virgil W. Earp, but I didn't even get to the point of looking up "Virgil E. Earp" on the Chronicling America" web site.... more

            Finally, my book "Newton Jasper Earp: Mystery Brother of the Famous 'Fighting Earps'" is going to press. It should be ready to market in July. The delay was that I had let "Chasing Billy the Kid..." book... more

              Congratulations, Roy. Given how good your TTR presentation was, it's going to be a great addition to the field. Mike

                Thank you, Mike. I've added bits and pieces, the past two years, to Newton's story, letting Billy the Kid get in the way as I completed that book. Just had a call that the page proofs for the Billy book... more

                Thanks, BJ. I'm hoping to have the books in hand by early July. Cindy was as way off base on Newton as a black sheep as she was on Billy the Kid, making him out to be a hermaphrodite (as she announced... more

                    Right, Bob. Ole Julian will finally get his due one of these days! Ha. Thanks for the laugh.
