Layers and layers of fact checking! Editorial oversight! Yet no one could be bothered even to look at Wikipedia?
What else will our self-styled intellectual betters claim as myth? Al Capone? Prohibition?
I expect that the person writing this story used "myth" not because he thought Bonnie and Clyde weren't actual historical figures, but because he was trying to write smart words about how they became legendary. The problem is, "myth" doesn't mean what he thinks it means. "Legend" would have been a less-risible choice, though still problematic, because that word generally describes something that actually happened but so long ago that no one's really sure, and sifting the tall tales from the facts of the event is difficult.

Managed to turn out a decent meal yesterday. Turkey came out nicely. All I did with the mashed potatoes was to boil them; Mrs. Fungus handled peeling, cutting, and then mashing them.
My mother-in-law offered to help, so I had her do the crescent rolls.
The meal was great, dessert was great, the company was great; we had a lovely holiday.
And, counting today, there are still three days left in my weekend.
