We read news of a Wild West-style shootout in Knoxville with an actual Wild West bandit. Kid Curry was one of the most wanted criminals, a cohort of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. After participating in the Great Northern Train Robbery, he hid out in Knoxville until one evening he got into fisticuffs in a Bowery pool hall. Police arrived on the scene, and in the exchange of gunfire the bandit—whose real name was Harvey Logan—escaped from the police he wounded. Logan’s wounds led to his identification and capture two days later.
