and speculation

by Laura Demilio

that is not turned into a book or newspaper article remains just that, hazarding an opinion and not definitively stating how an event happened. Hence, we can surmise (however "emotionally fueled" or not) but it would be irresponsible and unfair to put something down to publish as reliable truth. Which is why the likes of Berton's book is so infuriating. 40 some years later, Bix fans and even some self-professed scholars see that fantasy fiction as authentic biography.
