The other night while watching the news, a segment came on about "Brokeback Mountain". I groaned and said that I did not care to see that. Toby had not heard anything about the movie and asked why I did not want to see the movie or the segment. I explained that the movie was about gay cowboys. Of course, I ranted about movies these days and what will they think of next. Toby was incredulous. He stayed to see the news segment while I walked to the kitchen to do something more useful. Then I heard him laugh, so I came back toward the TV. He said, "That explains everything! Look! They are not cowboys. They are sheep herders!" Sure enough, the clip showed them moving sheep – not cattle. So please do not call this a cowboy movie.
