Roy Rogers’s Happy Trails for 2023—the King of the Cowboys Has a Few Suggestions

From a Wall Street Journal commentary by Bob Greene headlined “Roy Rogers’s Happy Trails for 2023”:

As we start the new year with well-intentioned resolutions, there’s a voice from the past we may want to heed: Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys.

Between action-packed chases on his golden palomino, Trigger, and fistfights with bad guys on dusty Western streets, I’ve been struck by the wisdom he managed to slip into his episodes during the early days of television. Boys and girls who watched the wildly popular “Roy Rogers Show” from 1951-57, or modern viewers who come across cable reruns, may have been unaware of how diligent Roy was about artfully inserting a life lesson into each day’s story.
