Wayne Greenough and his Comics
My parents were very brave. They had a radio and a son at the same time. I was born in 1932. The Lone Ranger arrived on radio station WXYZ in 1933. I may have been five before I started listening to that greatest of all Texas Rangers. In February I will be eighty. I have Lone Ranger pictures on my den’s wall, a mask, a holstered toy gun, and a Texas Ranger badge.
As a schoolteacher I read children stories to my classes every school day. I love children’s books. I read more of them than adult books. Obviously ‘Champion of Justice and Freedom,’ were born in my class. But I didn’t know that.
