Wyoming stories and reflections by Joe Strine

“Wyoming Code of Ethics”

Cowboy on Horse                                                                                                                                                      

In March 2010, Wyoming became the first state to come up with a code of ethics. As it had to be cleared and adopted by the state legisature, you can guess how long this took. After much haggling, jerry manderring, pork bellying, comprimising, and fist fighting, this is what they came up with. We’re all thanking God that they worked it out. Heaven knows how currupt and unethical cowboys are. We surely would have gone to hell if our representatives hadn’t stepped in.
