RIP Dr X

Dick Beyer aka The Sensational Intelligent Destroyer aka Dr X has passed at the age of 88. Beyer was a superstar under the mask and the biggest masked, non-Hispanic wrestler of all time.

Never heard of him? We’re not surprised. He was rookie of the year in 1955 when few of us were born.

We prowled around a few corners of the internet and found what we feel is the best obit on the man. link

9th Ward Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

We received a couple off-site missives asking us where we’re taking all these killer photos. Short answer: 9th Ward. Long answer: We spend a lot of time on foot, walking around Florida Development, St Claude, Desire, Bywater and the immediate zone that surrounds the Industrial Canal.

Perhaps one out of a hundred subjects recoils in horror and demands to have the photo deleted. Some folks are camera shy but not this little boy. He got real excited and requested a handshake.

9th Ward is the best ward y’all.
