I have long agreed with the position that when a paper publishes a correction due to their own error or bias, it should be presented in the same prominence as the original. I am not going to turn around and exempt myself from that standard.
Mr. Kierkegaard read that review, for which I thank him, and reached out to correct some of the issues I had with the writing. I will present my complaints, shortened, reordered to make Mr. Kierkegaard’s response sequence fit better, with his responses in red.
- The partner of the Sundance Kid was Butch Cassidy not ‘Casaday’.
- The “real” Durango, Charlie Siringo, called him that in print.
- Durango’s pistol is a Colt .45, not Colts.
- And Charlie in all his books referred to his Colt as his “Colts 45”.
I wish to thank Rod Kierkegaard, Jr. for the information, and for being a perfect gentleman when I had been less than such. And while I do stand by the balance of the review, I wish to repeat that his ideas are always excellent, and I will likely keep reading since I like the potential that I see there – they do fuel my imagination, which is what I look for.
