This is too cool. The Massachusetts legislature may take up a bill declaring Rex Trailer the official cowboy of the state.
Rex was the host of a kids show on Channel 4 in Boston called “Boomtown.” I was one of thousands of kids who thrilled to his exploits on weekend mornings.
Even Rex, still active at 82, acknowledges that Massachusetts lawmakers have more important work to do.
So do Connecticut lawmakers. But hey, if they saddled up as kids with Tex Pavel or Ranger Andy…why not?
There certainly isn’t going to be much else to smile about in this session.
