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 the story-teller.

For example, when Wyatt told about this happening; "...McLaury ran to his horse for a gun and was BLOWN TO BITS by Doc Holliday's shotgun..." Holliday knew Tom was not armed, and Tom certainly did not RUN anywhere from where he was standing. Doc shot an unarmed, defenseless man who had threatened no one, had done nothing wrong to anyone in town, and had no criminal charges of any kind against him, and in the telling Wyatt's terminology smacks of bragging! And then Clum proudly relates this. Mr. Clum does not come out looking very good at all.

        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
