10 Myths: Really Don’t Like
With all due respect to Mr. Tillman the number 1 debunking portion of his myths article is, and rightfully should be, offensive to many readers. His comparisons to create his view are patent nonsense—which, in my opinion, brings his credulity and judgment as a genuinely objective author into question.
The entire myth piece is based on non-issues, especially the number 1 so-called myth. To compare the undeniable and honored courage and integrity of a few hundred citizens during the origins of the United States to a massive, worldwide campaign involving a hundred nations and millions of men and women against a genuinely
ruthless and aggressive evil is beyond ridiculous and begs belief.
I enjoy most of the factual stories, especially those with great photographs. But this issue was not one of your better efforts. Thanks for letting us know how you feel, Ernest.—BD (CFI, CFII, ME, Typed P-38/B-25, Active 1958–present).
