Obvious goals
Sun Jan 09, 22:27

As always, your priority is to preserve the valor of the Boys and not to contribute to meaningful, objective conversation. This bias makes it impossible to take your comments seriously and is at times borderline offensive to people doing honest research. I don't wish to spend the time necessary to explain why your comment has no practical value. I've learned that where such bias exists, constructive conversation and learning opportunities cannot...as perhaps your rebuttal (and my lack of) may prove.

      When one plans to assassinate someone on the street in a busy town, one usually does not leave their get-away car three blocks away and down in a gulch as described in the 'Virgil account.' Better pla... more

          Hello Mike, I certainly would not want to ask you to waste valuable time explaining what you find wrong with my comments and why they have no practical value, but I am lost as to exactly which comm... more
        • The "Dirty Deed"Eddie Lanham, Mon Jan 10 3:38
          There is no doubt who shot Virgil and Morgan. All were cowards of the lowest form who assassinated their victims under the cover of darkness.

            Eddie,I am hoping you might offer some actual evidence to support such a strong statement?

              Roy B. Young confirmed what Wyatt and others thought. Assassin: The premeditated act of killing someone suddenly or secretively, especially a prominent person.

                Eddie, We all know what Wyatt THOUGHT, but what is the actual evidence? Most of Wyatt's THOUGHTS didn't demonstrate any real support and usually the names he used to back himself up were people who w... more

                  Besides Wyatt's testimony, McMaster testified that he had a conversation with Ike in Charleston the night of the shooting in which he (Ike) said he'd "have to go back and do the job over". Also, Parso... more

                    Hi Eddie, Well, from my side of the coin, one can only imagine Ike's disappointment over the failed success of the attempt to finish off an Earp after his brother's killing. Not unusual to make such ... more

                      Joyce, We could go back and forth on this for days and never agree. I honestly believe that the McLaurys were ranchers, but I believe the Clantons, at least the "Old Man" and Ike, were as my mother wo... more

                        Hi there, Eddie Thank you for the kind invitation. I would love to attend TTR next time but I have been afraid I'd be shot at some point so have stayed home and tried to keep my mouth shut. You hav... more

                  Have you read Roy Young's WWHA Journal article Who Killed Morgan Earp? or seen the WWHA YouTube video on the same topic? It is more than just" Wyatt's Thoughts". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiW... more

                    Hello Pam, I have to admit I have not read the article or if I had it is so long ago I had forgotten the details. I will follow your suggestion and look it up as there is always more to examine on th... more

                      Pam, I did watch the video and enjoyed it very much. It was a very pleasant presentation, very reasonable. However, it really doesn't answer the question as to who tried to assassinate Virgil, wh... more

          If that hat had belonged to Ike Clanton, it would NOT have been left behind no matter what the consequences. I am not suggesting Ike was some sort of hero; just that he, like all cowboys, would not be... more
          • Ike's HatDan Brown, Sun Jan 16 12:45
            Ike was likely too busy skeedaddling from the crime scene to be worrying about his hat. I Figure he had at aleast a pint of See-it-Through in him before the ambush. What we know about Ike's actions at... more

              Are you just bored or need someone to pick on? You have to know by now that Ike had witnesses for the Virgil thing, one was McMasters, an Earp buddy. Ike was in Charleston at the time. During Morga... more

                Well, as you've pointed out, the allegations against Ike were dismissed due to the lack of evidence. A found hat, Ike's or not, is evidence of only one thing: a lost hat. But we can be fairly cert... more

          I would think Ike’s hat at the crime scene would be considered evidence.?

            Nick, I never suggested any such idea, but why do you think the hat was Ike's? In a courtroom it was established no name was on the hat; no one knew how long it had been there, what type of hat it ... more
