God Bless John Wayne!?

By Mark D. Roberts | Saturday, February 28, 2009

Well, you don’t see that bumper sticker everyday. Oh, I suppose “Standing Tall” and “Let’s Roll” can be seen here and there, especially in Texas. But “God Bless John Wayne” is a rarity, at least in my experience.

I wonder if this proud Texan realizes that he’s asking the Almighty to bless a bona fide resident of Orange County, California! Not to mention an alumnus of Glendale High School, my alma mater!

Of course I’m afraid it’s a little late to ask God to bless Mr. Wayne. After all, he’s been dead for almost exactly 30 years.

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
