Some Men Need Killing  This "whodunit" had no mystery about it.  The Mayor did it.  Everybody saw him do it. In the end, it appeared, or at least to the majority of those present, that it needed to be done.   October 22, 1904: It was a cool fall Saturday morning.  Lovett town marshal B.T. Kight a...
