I suspect if one were to follow the philosophy of "if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all" there would be mostly silence about the man.

      There used to be some outstanding wordsmithing whenever Glenn showed up here or over at Terry Clanton's website. For a while he sort of had a corner on the Earp market. Thumb through the bibliographies... more

        Glen idolized Earp. Maybe it was Lake book or the movies or the TV show. He wrote pamphlets and books about Earp and the Tombstone stalwarts and probably made a little money and what was for him a lot... more

        Exposing fraudulent manuscripts and toxic diatribes is important per maintaining historical accuracy.

          My attitude about Boyer, having never met or communicated with the man is probably much the same as an art aficionado’s view is on an art forger- At best a grotesque curiosity, at worst a crook whose... more

                I am highly impressed that Albert Behan would be able identify Earp's death bed. The pistol auctioned off as Earp's, after Boyer's death, had had its serial numbers filed off. I reckon Earp had some free... more

                Towards the end there he seemed desperate for attention and even approval. Sort of like he was cornered by his own shadow. It's possible that he would have pretended to like you. For your ears.
