Karen Bailey and Kris Green: The Respect they Deserve
Indications are that a good portion of this nation has gone soft. Americans eat more, weigh more and are generally not considered as tough as their predecessors, who settled this land with mettle and resolve, some on horseback with a gun at their side. It’s the quintessential image of the West: tough pioneers, men and women alike, forging a new life from a bountiful, yet unforgiving, environment.
