Bat Masterson: They Called Him Bat

by Bart Bull
(published in SPIN)

Bat Masterson, gunslinger, gambler, buffalo hunter, Army scout, sheriff of Dodge City, murderer, card dealer, boxing promoter, brawler, finished his life in deep disgrace as a New York City sportswriter. Discovered slumped over dead at his desk, the sheet of paper in his typewriter read: "There are many in this old world of ours who hold that things break about even for all of us. I have observed for example that we all get the same amount of ice. The rich get it in the summertime and the poor get it in the winter."
