E. G. Marshall must quote Shakespeare more than any other writer, but I think Mark Twain might rank second. In his introduction to this show, he refers to a Twain comment regarding the weather. It became clear fairly early that this was no guardian angel; the fun of the episode was waiting for the trap to spring on the hustler. Speaking of weather, wasn't the actor who portrayed the hustler the same actor who handled the role of a young man whose mood swings affect the weather? As I think about it, I am somewhat surprised that there weren't more RMTs set in the wild west. Or maybe there were and I just can't recall them (or have not yet heard them).

There are a few Wild West ones that I've listened to. I do kinda like this one though. It took me a little while to catch onto what was happening.
