Fifty years to the day after a deadly sniper attack at The University of Texas (UT) shattered the midday calm of summer in 1966, an archived edition of the Texas Medical Association’s Texas Medicine magazine details the emergency medical response to the rampage.

It has been said and written that once you leave home, you can really never go back. Larry McMurtry, renowned Texas writer, proved that not only can you go home again, but also that you can take much of the world with you.

The characters are real and have taken up residence in the hearts and minds of the faithful. Everyone has a favorite.
