Lone Ranger Passes

The death of Clayton Moore, who rode across America's film and TV screens for more than two decades on his mighty horse, Silver, leaves behind a unique American tale that was unmasked in his 1996 autobiography. In "I Was That Masked Man," Moore states, "I would like to have the Lone Ranger remembered as a great American, who was a friend to all. That he stood up for everyone, and that he epitomized everything that is great about America. And I would like Clayton Moore to be remembered in the same way. Until that day I am taken to that big ranch in the sky I will try to live up to the standards of honesty, decency, respect, patriotism that have defined the Lone Ranger since 1933." Moore, a role model to millions of baby boomers since 1949, died Tuesday, December 28.
