This article from Real Clear Politics bemoans the lack of Western movies made these days. It also, in a way, shows why I prefer watching old movies in general. This quote is priceless: I know of a mother in California who would not allow her son to play with any kind of toy weapon, much less a cowboy fighting Indians. I think her son will grow up to be a man incapable of standing up against evil, who will shrink at the approach of the next bully, and undoubtedly vote Democrat. Hopefully, the son rebels. But I agree. Please make more Western movies where the cowboys are dependable, have integrity, have courage, and are straight talkers.
