|The Correct Bank|
But we needed to further clarify and certify the Jesse James Northfield Raid saga which has met with some misfortune on this otherwise precisely constructed blog.
We found the correct bank around the corner from the Post Office and sure enough there were the two bullet holes marked with circles. But true authentication came from the young leader of a sidewalk tour group, costumed in a full-length print dress, giving chapter and verse to the whole story, the perfect summer job. Did you know they only got $26 in the raid? The horse was shot over there.
As our gang crossed the threshold, we were addressed directly by the group leader.
"Were you here at the beginning of the tour?" she asked the gang. She already knew her own answer, of course, and then it dawned on us too. She wanted some money.
We exited faster than Cole Younger and Jesse James.
