Stretching the truth...

I was reading some of the accusations aimed at Larry and his book on the other website, and if one were to believe what was said, you would think that Larry's book on Jim was X-rated. I've read the book a few times already, and any sexual references that I can remember were pretty mild compared to what I've seen in some biographies, and I do not see how it makes Jim look anything less than human, like we all are. If any one of us had been in Jim's shoes, a good number of us might have given in to some of the temptations that stardom can bring. I think the majority of the fans who have read Larry's incredible account of Jim's life will agree that it did not tarnish his image one bit, even though he might have given in to some things that a lot of people wouldn't approve of. It just proves that Jim was human, like the rest of us.
