We Americans love our cowboy mythology, including the idea that the dudes on the range have an innate sense of ethics.
James Owen, the author of “Cowboy Ethics” would be proud to know that Wyoming has adapted his content to their state laws!
So perhaps it’s fitting that Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal has now made 10 principles derived from “”the Code of the West” (drawn from a book by a retired Wall Street investor, James Owen)a symbolic part of state law, according to The Associated Press.
The AP story says folks in Wyoming are officially urged to:
… live courageously, take pride in their work, finish what they start, do what’s necessary, be tough but fair, keep promises, ride for the brand, talk less and say more, remember that some things aren’t for sale, and know where to draw the line.
Is anyone going to share this with Congress?
What ‘brand’ do you ride for?
