Joyce, I was just about to make inquiries about your well-being since you hadn't jumped on this like a duck on a June bug. I see you are fine and still full of "expletive deleted" and vinegar. Your duck, however, may be hunting for an elusive prey.

You write: "So Mr. Clum tells us that Wyatt told him RIGHT AFTER THE FIGHT that he knew Tom McLaury was not armed. Clum knew this, then, before the Hearing and yet still backed those men in his paper. What does that tell us about Mr. Clum?
Not a good recommendation of character."


In fact, Clum said, according to the article, that "...Wyatt discussed this with him afterward."

At the time this article was written, it was a few months shy of the 50th anniversary of the gunfight. Clum knew Wyatt up until his death in 1929. This "afterward" could have referred to any time during that period of their friendship, including the time in Alaska that George Parsons recorded that Wyatt to him and Clum, in great detail, about his experiences in Tombstone. So, Joyce, close but no cigar.

Hope you are doing well. I promised my grandsons that I would take them to Tombstone next year, either Spring Break or next summer. So when we have that cup of coffee or lunch or supper I've been promising you for years, be ready to tell them your side of the story. See you then.

      I am always surprised by the adoration of Wyatt Earp by Mr. Clum. When Earp described to Clum what took place at the gunfight, it is appalling that Clum is not shocked by the braggadocio attitude of... more

        So nice to connect up with you once again. However, I think we are talking about interpretation here, don't you think? "Afterward" certainly has the connotation of 'not long after' or even pretty... more

          Just think, Joyce, you could tell them what good hearted, hard working, fun loving guys Ike and the boys were. They both like history museums and I try to give them both sides of a story (or 3 or 4)... more

            Hi Bob, Not for a moment would I attempt to disillusion the boys with contradictory accounts. You and I can argue each other till dawn but the boys' understanding of their grandpa's wonderful stories ... more
