    Doc Holliday
    That guy took on all of Tombstone and he was only armed with a debilitating cough and a shotgun.
    All he had to do was cough on a “nasty” and lgive him T.B.
    Plus, he always had the Earps to back him up and lhis shotgun as a long-stop.
    I’m not crazy. I only appear to be.
