I assume these posts in defense of the Wyatt Earp Anthology are in response to something Kenny wrote that got deleted by the guy who "paid for this microphone". The sad thing is that if Kenny had published any sourced piece -journal article, magazine article, book - based on his research on James, Morgan, Virgil or Newton, some of it would have ended up in the Anthology. When discussing important finds in the last twenty years while working on the Finding Wyatt article (for which Casey generously added my name even though I didn't write a word), he and I agreed that the list of the ten most important finds would have been significantly different if Kenny had shared his sources publicly. Since then, many of the things Kenny had spoken about on this forum and others appeared in Bossenecker's Ride the Devil's Herd. His most important finds, particularly about Morgan, remain unsourced and unpublished (other than in drips and drabs on this forum and many that have been lost forever on Texas Jack's) and until he decides to publish them he remains just another Earp researcher who makes big claims but doesn't deliver the goods or his sources. Please deliver the goods, Kenny. I think you can, but time will tell.

            That Asimov quote is perfect, and timely. You are correct that no work is ever finished, merely abandoned at some point. That is the nature of "making," isn't it? I once stumbled onto the quote (I ... more
