And cowboy gunslingers
I recently watched an old episode of the "Cisco Kid" and remember the show as a young boy. These guys could shoot a guy at full speed on a horse and he'd be dead before hitting the ground. No horses were ever harmed in these old shows. Pancho (Leo Carillo) was a faithful but somewhat bumbling sidekick of Cisco in that series which, in today's world, would offer a negative stereotype that would cause some to shriek in horror. "How dare anyone air such awful programs!" might be the rant. Yeah...watching that stuff really messed us up. We'd have been better off growing up with today's offerings of non-stop sex and violence.
