A night without armor in a savage land are some of the lyrics in the Paladin song.Those words are food for thought.As a kid I had such a crush on Paladin. He was not good looking, but so masculine. Years ago I had a conversation with a black woman at work and she told me how she also had a crush on Paladin when she was a kid. None of the leading men have that masculine quality any longer.
