Wyoming Wants to Lead the Way. . .

. . . but the code came from a Texan.

Texans can relate. Wyoming may adopt the 'cowboy code' as symbolic law | News Bizarre | - Houston Chronicle: "Some members of the Wyoming Legislature want to instill “cowboy ethics” in state law, lest lawmakers and citizens forget the state’s western roots.

The code would stress the importance of living with courage, keeping promises, finishing what you start and saying more by talking less.

Based on the “Code of the West” outlined in a 2004 book by James Owen, a Wall Street investor from Texas, Senate File 51 galloped through the Wyoming Senate last week and on Monday lassoed unanimous approval from the House Minerals Committee."


  1. The minerals committee? Huh?

  2. I wondered about that, myself.

  3. I've always tried to live my life as outlined in the "Lone Ranger's Creed."

  4. That's a good one, and The Lone Ranger was a Texan.

    Jay Thomas has the best Lone Ranger story that he told once on the Late Show. Google it to find it on YouTube. You'll enjoy it!

  6. I've seen him tell it several times. A great story, all right.
