Vote Early, Vote Often . . .

There is nothing more American than a good, fair and honest election . . . and I'm betting that in the 200 plus year history of this amazing nation that there have been at least one or two that fit that that honorable description . . . maybe more. If you are reading this and you are a U.S. citizen you know that the other political party(s) will lie, cheat and steal votes and voters hearts any way they can . . . isn't it great . . . no matter which party you favor, you agree with that statement . . . What a great country this is (and I mean that, despite my smarta*# remarks) . . . somehow that I don't fully understand yet, no matter which party wins an election, the universe somehow arranges it so that our nation evolves into a better place than it was yesterday . . . even though it usually appears to the rest of the world that our country is always heading for hell in a hand basket. In this cowboy western adventure Sheriff Hopalong Cassidy, played by William Boyd, has cleaned up his town in the Texas Panhandle and is ready for the next election, with no opponent to run against him. Enter paroled convict Tad Hammond, put on parole with Hopalong Cassidy as his parole officer. Now, as a convicted felon Hammond cannot run for Sheriff or even vote in the upcoming election . . . but he can and does pull together all of the outlaws that Sheriff Hopalong Cassidy has run out of town, and with the help of forty thieves returned to the small Texas Panhandle town he manages to get wimpy saloon owner Jerry Doyle elected as the new Sheriff, and the gangsters become the new deputies. What a revoltin' development! (Sorry, that was a sudden memory from the old 'Life of Riley' tv sit-com, but it works here). No one would dare shoot down a Sheriff, but now that Hopalong Cassidy is no longer Sheriff things are a bit different. Ex-con Hammond, played by Douglass Dumbrille, offers two thousand dollars to the man who will kill Cassidy in a shoot-out. Fast forward to noon the next day and we have Hopalong Cassidy, plain old citizen cowboy, in the middle of the street facing forty thieves on horseback with guns pulled and ready to shoot it out with one cowboy . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
