Note from John: When I worked in Fort Myers, FL, we had a commentator named Bob Marland, who had lived a wild and wonderful life. He looked like a standard-issue retiree, but he had owned a cattle ranch and rode roundups, owned and ran radio stations, kept a bottle of Cutty in the back of his pickup and raised hell, became a Lt Col in the Air Force and knew Jimmy Stewart, and much more. He recorded this story -- about attempted murder among settlers in Western Nebraska -- some time in 1991.
