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 time whilst on his death bed.

Boyer was a bit homophobic. Just about anyone who dares disagree with him was henceforth referred to as a Peter Pan.
He and Joe McCarthy had some things in common.

I'm surprised Boyer got away with it as long as he did. It does reveal the short-cuts past biographers took to complete their works. No one thought to check Boyer's sources before Tefertiller?

        I’m not sure if you would have asked to sleep in Wyatt Earp’s death bed? I think that any man asking for that particular accommodation would have been immediately assigned to Boyer’s gay alert radar... more

          I do my best work in the dark. Or so the rumor. No voodoux or seances though, at least that I can recall, but then, my powers of recollection, among so many other things, ain't what they used to be.

            I didn't. Some of my colleagues did. There was a fire in a senior care facility and, just like Wyatt Earp in Lake's book, they assisted in the safe evacuation of all the seniors. They were invited... more
