"Psychopaths are found in every segment of society...."
excerpt from the book Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us, by Robert Hare.
Let me make a few points clear as air to some of my less-than-friendly fellow reviewers:
1) Before attacking someone's opinion and character, ensure that you are indeed attacking his or her opinion and not something you concocted.
2) Read my review of the movie "Bonnie and Clyde" for a better feel on my opinion on B&C. You'll find it somewhat different than your assumptions.
3) Critiquing a book is not the same as attacking the subject of a book. Do I REALLY need to elaborate on this? True, all histories have errors. It's equally true that each and every one of those errors taints the authority of a book. This book had a few too many for my taste. I found myself questioning the authors in non-B&C sections because of B&C errors.
4) Frank did America a lot of great services, including whacking B&C. However, he is not a god -- brave and fascinating but not a god. Hero worship is for children. By the way, I suspect ambushing booze runners without trying to apprehend them first (if that indeed happened) takes one out of the "great" category. Prohibition was highly controversial at the time and hardly warranted denying someone, even a Mexican, due process or his life. However, if he starts shooting first, kill 'em.
5) As an important part of America's great history, Frank deserves a history with a little more quality control.
In short, I stand by my original review with the exception that I should have stated that Bonnie was "most likely" not at the Grapevine killing, rather than stating my opinion as fact. I can't wait to see what some folks read into this one.
