Ten Facts About the Lone Ranger

posted by Nell Minow

Be sure to check out my gallery about the history of the Lone Ranger (Did you know he’s the Green Hornet’s uncle? Can you name Tonto’s horse? How did he get his name? Why does he use silver bullets?) as the new movie version with Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer opens this week.

We can all learn from the Lone Ranger’s creed.

“I believe that to have a friend, a man must be one. That all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world. That God put the firewood there but that every man must gather and light it himself. In being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right. That a man should make the most of what equipment he has. That ‘This government, of the people, by the people and for the people’ shall live always. That men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number. That sooner or later… somewhere…somehow… we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken. That all things change but truth, and that truth alone, lives on forever. In my Creator, my country, my fellow man.”

And don’t forget the annual David Letterman tradition of the Jay Thomas story about the Lone Ranger.
