Nice post over at Say Uncle (clink the post's title to get to the link) on the flurry of posts about the disappearance of "real men." His take — it's all B-S. My take? He's right. Out here in the rural west, we never much bought into the post-macho metrosexual sensitive to the point of tears paradigm for men. We work for a living. Times are too darn scary to be overcome with nonsense angst.
Male or female, I really like the abbreviated version of The Cowboy Way as a handy way to orient one's life — "If it ain't yours, don't take it; if it ain't true, don't say it; if it ain't right, don't do it." Covers most of the things that happen in life, doesn't it?
