Finger-Pointing at the O.K. Corral

Thursday is the 125th anniversary of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. Friends Wyatt Earp and Terry "Ike" Clanton are relatives of men on opposite sides of the fight, and still can't agree on who was to blame.

“I’ve always said it was the first form of police brutality in America,” says Clanton, a cousin of the infamous Clanton clan.

“It’s amusing,” says Earp, a nephew of the storied lawman. “(Clanton) talks about the Clantons and McLaurys as not being bad guys. Oh, boy. I know better.” [Link]
