              K Iím reading the latest book on Buksmith Frank Leslie, and of course it covers this. They donít think he shot Ringo. The book raised some interesting points.

                  Kenny I noticed a couple of questionable assertions in the book too (Wyatt dying of cancer eg) and I cannot follow how they identified Leslieís body. It improved my view of Leslie though, and the... more
