Hey, remember these–heroes? Like the Lone Ranger. Show me the kid from the 1950s who never shouted “Hi-yo, Silver!” Every week, the Lone Ranger and Tonto smacked down the bad guys. And they never got their clothes dirty, doing it.
When America junked the whole idea of heroes like the Lone Ranger and Tonto, America did herself a bad turn. Yeah, sure, they were fictional. Of course they were! It’s a thing called “ideals.” We used to have ideals.
We really ought to bring ’em back.
