    Sheriff Troop's wisdom

    Was channel surfing yesterday and saw "Lawman" on the guide. I haven't seen that show in many, many years and switched to it. The opening scene had Troop, Johnny and Lily sitting in the saloon when the visiting marshal came in. The marshal asked Troop why he allowed all these guys in the bar to be armed as so many towns forbid it. Troop responded,

    "A man who's got business with a gun is going to bring it anyhow. Taking them from everyone else is just going to make his job easier".

    This from a show from the 50's-60's when we knew who the bad guys were by the color of their hat. When kids ran around with cap gun six-shooters wrapped around their hips, and we hardly ever had to lock the doors.

    Shoot, that's how we rolled in the 80's!

    I wanted to, but would have looked kind of silly as I was in my 30's in the 80's.

    I used to stare down Matt Dillon every Saturday night during his opening shootout. Watched every TV western from Sky King to Hopalong to Cisco Kid. Always knew the difference between reality and a TV show. Nowadays, with all the goodie-goodie cartoons on and the violence that goes on, I wonder if Roy and Matt and Hopalong didn't have it right after all.

    Truer words have rarely been spoken.
