149. He played out a popular dream and became John Wayne in his own mind.
He played out a popular dream and became John Wayne in his own mind. For an instant, he was the 'rootinest, tootinest, cowboy this side of the Pecos-- ready ta take down any varmints'.

For one moment in time, all the world became black and white, good and evil. He was the Cowboy and they were those "lyin' evil Injuns". For one brief moment.

Then, after that moment passed, two men were dead and the full context of that scenario will haunt him for years to come.

Be careful what you wish for you poor, dumb schmuck.
