Oddly appropriate fashion accessory

Seeing Dick Armey dressed up like a cowboy today, I was reminded that very briefly, almost thirty years ago, I actually liked George Will:
Compared to some cowboys -- symbols of rugged individualism: hairy chested, leathery skinned, crow's feet around the eyes -- who use heavily subsidized water, graze their cattle on public land for a pittance, and have their market protected by beef import quotas -- compared to such Marlboro men, the average inner-city welfare mother is the soul of self-reliance
Admittedly, George Will wrote that column twenty-nine years ago; much has changed since then.
