The “new” Lone Ranger is due out next summer. I have no plans to see it. It would desecrate the memory of my first love.
From my first early encounter with The Masked Man and his Faithful Companion, I was in love. There were times when it was unclear whether I loved the horse or his rider more. I think Silver had a slight edge, but I yearned for the both.
To satisfy my passion and because I grew up when wallpaper was something you glued to walls, I had Lone Ranger and Tonto in my bedroom. Life was not easy for me, but I had the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains all around me. It helped during the really dark times.
