In a few seconds the Democratic presidential candidates will be debating levels of elitism, in a few days Congress will be debating the next huge bill tapping billions of dollars for the Iraq War, and in a few minutes, I will have posted my first entry on CowboyLands. Neither as expensive as a war bill nor as contentious as a debate between two people of the same political party, this blog will seek to give a little bit of the West to everyone.
Feeling powerless? See what Gary Cooper would say in your situation.
Feeling parched for culture? Belly up to top ten lists of western movies, music, and vistas, courtesy of yours truly and any other buckeroo who chances upon this site.
Feeling mentally dusty? Hop into the latest Western fetish, collection, and obsession. Ditto on the importance of the contributions of other buckeroos.
Feeling like you’re ready to ride the high country ? Saddle up and ride, ride, ride to the farthest reaches of the world to find the best cowboy thinking has to offer.
It’s not all going to happen at once, but if the Lone Ranger can beat up all those villains with two bare fists, I can certainly figure out how to post images, video, music, and more.
Stay tuned, and happy trails.
Once Upon a Time in the West directed by Sergio Leone, 1968

Cheyenne: He’s whittlin’ on a piece of wood. I’ve got a feeling when he stops whittlin’… Somethin’s gonna happen.
