Now I'll tell you why I asked.
Years ago I spent one summer sorta bumming out west, and got to know quite a few REAL "cowboys." I always appreciated their stories, their sense of humor and their sense of justice. Today, when I see someone like Mr. Black, or read their 'clever' stories,I can't help but think of what my dad used to call a substitute - a poor imitation of the real thing.
And it appears now we have a substitute president, too.
