Recently I had the great honor of being accepted as a Facebook Friend with actor James Drury of “The Virginian” television series fame.
Mr. Drury is currently campaigning to get his co-star, Doug McClure (who played Trampas on the show) posthumously inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame.
As such, there is an online petition one can access and sign to help accomplish this very goal. You can access it here: http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/DougMcCLure
This is a very worthwhile endeavor for those of us who loved TV cowboys. Mr. McClure is particularly deserving of this honor not only because of his work in front of the camera, but also because he was supportive and giving to the community through his work with young people and helping them avoid drug use in addition to working with those who were already addicted.
Doug McClure was one of the good guys. Let’s see that he gets this award.
“Saddletramp Swami” thanks you for your help!
