At the end of the day, Cody won by the count of 68 to 48 and earned undisputed rights to "Buffalo Bill". The story has never been completely substantiated but the folk in Oakley believe it and, by golly, so do I. Kansas is also home to the geographical center of the 48 contiguous states. Surprising thumbs up to Kansas, a state I thoroughly ...
