There is Justice

Daily Stories by Dr Stephen Sloan

I was conducting a simulation on the fair grounds of a medium sized town near a Strategic Air Command Base. The state and local tactical teams were out in force and continually engaged in rappelling off a wall. Their skills had nothing to do with the exercise. I guess they just enjoyed the challenge. I was observing events from a car that was parked across from the barricaded area when a rider less horse proceeded to race down the road between my vantage point and the building where the “terrorist” held the “hostages.” A local sheriff stopped his car and asked me had a seen a horse. In true Oklahoma fashion I said, “He went that away.” Totally oblivious to what was taken place he “peeled rubber” and went after the errant horse. The Wild West had come to my simulation.
