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) when we go. They'll be 14 and 11 next year and both can quote TOMBSTONE word for word so be gentle when you tell them the "truth".

As far as Clum's opinion of the Earps, he quotes Wyatt as giving both Tom and Ike the choice of "get to fighting or get out", allows Ike to skidattle and says Doc blasted Tom as he attempted to get a rifle off a horse. Why would any of that reflect badly on Wyatt? Of course, Clum never had any use for Doc to begin with..
