Oh, and “Maverick”? Seriously? Somebody thought that beating that tag until it bled was a great idea?

What do people associate Maverick with these days? Crummy ’70’s economy cars? Old James Garner horse operas? Tom Cruise before he went nuts?

The more these people try to play “folksie”, the more it strikes me as cynical and deluded. And I grew up in a small town too.
