We're All Cowboys Now

On Monday, the House passed a resolution making "the Code of the West" the "model of conduct in [the] State of Oregon." WTF?

At some point in their lives, all little boys want to be cowboys. Most grow out of it. And then there's the Oregon House.

On Monday, the House passed a resolution making "the Code of the West" the "model of conduct in [the] State of Oregon." The "Code of the West" is a mix of platitudes ("Do what has to be done") and obscure precepts ("Ride for the brand" - WTF?) that's pretty bland in itself. But do our legislators really have nothing better to do these days than play cowboy?

Yippee ki-ay and WTF?
