Two-Gun Bob: Breaking News in Brownwood, Too

Continuing to poke around in the Texas newsprint of yesteryear, Brian Leno found another notice that Robert E. Howard had shot himself in the head, but remained alive, to go along with the one he found the other day.

“Just to let you know I found a Brownwood Bulletin from 6/11/36 that says Howard is in critical condition, front page actually,” Brian reports — breaking news and front page news.
