The writer was correct with the information. The El Jobean Hotel was purchased and operated by Suicide Simon and it hosted circus folk for many years, at least as many years as the railroad ran through El Jobean. There are better sources for this information than Popular Mechanics and I've got them. I will put this on my to-do list. Rogueblack (talk) 04:08, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
