I am about half way through Joyce Aros'new book, VANATGE POINT. I would urge all on this board to get a copy, if for no ther reason than to allow Joyce to make enough money to buy an air conditioner. She lives in Tombstone, Arizona without an air conditioner, for God's sake!
It is clear that Joyce, as far as I can discern, has not changed her point of view in the last 15 years on any matter concerning the street fight regardless of the vantage point of the witnesses she analyzes. I am going to hold off reviewing or critiquing her book for at least a couple of weeks to give a chance to others to buy the book so they can participate in or at least see the context of the debate that is sure to ensue.
My sincere hope is that my good friend, after cooling her house off, will realize that the excessive heat has effected her thinking process and logic for these last 15 years, and that now, with a cool head as well as cool home, she will realize the error of her ways and agree with all of my compelling insghts and arguments...but, I wouldn't count on it!

Hi paul I have not attended TTR for many years. Can anyone just drop in on the event on any day to see all the presentations and then sell books at the event without paying the TTR Registration fee?... more
I may have gotten ahead of my skis, so to speak. The people to ask are the organizers, which I cannot be (living as far away as I do). What I do know is that we've had more local folks in recent years... more
...Paul, do not be concerned. I fully understand how these events work and each must chip in to cover expenses. It is not a problem and I hope you have not been embarrassed by the question. I am very much... more
...on this board will appreciate what I have put you through over the years. I am so impressed that you have gotten half-way through the book and not been arrested for drunk and dangerous driving! How... more
You are right, Joyce. As long as I lay off the strong stuff, reading your book is great for my physical health (my mental health is another matter). After just a few pages my heart rate is the same as... more
Not embarrassed at all. Air conditioning is the most important invention in the last 5,000 years. I bet you uncivilized Arizonans think it was something useless like language, or writing, or penicillin,... more
