The Lone Ranger
The original Lone Ranger was a radio show started at station WXYZ in 1933. The show’s inventors, George Trendle and Fran Striker, created a code of conduct, sometimes referred to as the Lone Ranger Creed, to guide the writers of Lone Ranger stories. How well do you feel this version adheres to this creed?
