    Joyce, Let me try again. The purpose for attorneys on both sides was to win the case. That was their sole purpose. They were not trying to create a historical record because they anticipated... more

      Casey, Thank you for the crash course as there is always much to learn when it comes to complications of the Law at any time in history, and more so now. And in all fairness, one has to recognize that... more
      • Interesting observationButch Badon, Thu Jan 05 12:04
        Joyce. About complications of the law I mean. My dad always expressed his amazement that we Americans elected so many lawyers to make our laws for us. For him the ultimate conflict of interest was lawyers... more

        Joyce, Before I can respond, I need to ask a couple of questions. First, why do you believe Billy Clanton was still sitting on his horse? I would have expected he would have dismounted, but that... more

            Joyce, I have been tied up, but I wanted to clear up some points. Your initial complaint was that — in your opinion — the Dream Team did a lousy job. That is clearly not true because until almost... more

              were such despicable characters, why is it they had so many friends in town (and please, butchers were a small percentage of the residents of Tombstone)? Even the pro-Earp Epitaph said the Clanton-McLaury... more
