    "This is not a world in which one can turn the other cheek. Doing so does not avoid violence, but rather encourages it. The bad guys threaten, but they do not seem to want to get hurt. They should be taught that their presumed victim is more dangerous than they are. This is not a matter of weapons, but of will."

    Was one of my favorite shows. Love that the pic has one of the dogs with Magnum's Detroit Tigers cap in his mouth. "Look at the lock, not at the dogs"...Old Duesseldorf beer and chili dogs during the Army-Navy Game, rubber chickens, 1911's...

    Was Higgins really Robbin Masters or was it his "brother the priest". I think I remember Orson Welles that played Robbin Masters in an episode or maybe just his voice, but am probably remembering wrong. I cannot remember if that was ever decided or left hanging. Will we ever truly know.

    When I first saw the show I would of not guessed he was really a good old Texas boy and not an Englishman. Kind of like some of the characters in the "Walking dead" and "The Fear of the Walking Dead" being From England, Australia, and New Zealand.

    John will be missed, RIP.

    I just saw him recently in the classic Blazing Saddles. I think he was the one reading a proclamation as the black sheriff rode into town.

    He was in High Plains Drifter?

    Now I've got to go back and watch it again to find him.
    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.
