It\'s Too Bad We Don\'t Have Another Roy (by Bill Tbompson)
 Here we are, several days after his death, and not a disparaging word has been spoken or written about Roy Rogers. Usually, two days is about all it takes for the typical movie star\'s ex-wives and estranged children to start hyping their soon-to-be-published books detailing what a jerk the guy was when the cameras shut down.
 You\'d have to figure that there would be a cynic or two in this cynical age who would feel compelled to find fault with Rogers\'s acting or his singing or maybe his decision to stuff ol\'Trigger after the \"smartest horse in the movies\' went to the big corral in the sky.
 Not a chance. Movie historians praise him as the greatest of moviedom\'s singing cowboys. Music critics write fondly of his early crooning with the Sons of the Pioneers and his solo singing later on.
 President Clinton took a moment out from the demands of globetrotting and scandal-meanaging tp appreciate what Rogers \"stood for, the movies he made and the kind of values they embodied.\"
 Onetime rival Gene Autry saluted his fellow singing cowboy as a \"great humanitarian\" and a \" true Western hero.\"
 Not one disparaging word.
Update:  Fort Worth star-Telegram sports columnist Jim Reeves reminisced about his boyhood idol Tuesday and bemoaned the shortage of Rogers-like role models.
Update 2: "My greatest lament today, "Reeves wrote, "is that my own sons, growing up in a far more complicated world, didn't have a Roy Rogers to emulate and learn from."
Update 3: Which raises an interesting question. What would happen if Roy Rogers came along today? Would an adoring public make him a star, or would the skeptics scoff him out of show business? Would the critics dismiss his movies as corny and one-dimensional?
Update 4: Would Rogers's songs be shrugged off as trite and oversimplified? Would his sense of right and wrong be ridiculed as naive and uncompromising?
Update 5: How ironic that Roy Rogers should leave this life as a focal point of universal approval at a time when just about everything he stood for and believed in seems to be under attack by a society that scorns the values he espoused.
Update 6: Maybe he's being given his due because even those who no longer cherish his values just might suspect that the world was a better place when Roy Rogers reigned as King of the Cowboys.
Update 7: More often than not, a celebrity obituary will include something negative. Frank Sinatra died, and even heartfelt tributes by Sinatra's devotees in the media included passing mention of his alleged mob connections and his penchant for slugging photographers.
Update 8: Robert Mitchum died, and every story dredged up a decades-old marijuana conviction.
Update 9: It's as predictable as this year's "Titanic" Oscar binge: A show-business legend expires, and the obits are awash with tales of the late great's forays into barroom brawling, substance abuse, marital infidelity and who knows what other indiscretions.
Update 10: No matter how much the public reveres them, the rich and famous have a way of getting their names on a court docket-and the bad publicity follows them to the grave.
Update 11: We've seen so many celebrity "heroes" who turned out to be severely flawed individuals whose talent as performers might have been worthy of admiration but whose performance as human beings left much to be desired.
Update 12: So the ubiquitous tributes to Roy Rogers, who died last week at age 86, are all the more remarkable for containing no hint of scandal or bad behavior by the movie-and-TV star who was known as "King of the Cowboys."
Update 13: It's clear that Rogers was the same white-hat-wearing good guy in real life that he portrayed on screen. In a rare and gratifying cohesion of truth and fiction , the reel hero was a real hero.
Update 14: Rogers was devoted to his wife and family, treated his fans with respect and affection, and practiced in private the very same brand of Christianity that he preached in public.
Update 15: He never abused the position of trust awarded him by a public that treasured the image he conveyed as America's best-loved show-biz cowboy.
Update 16: 抱歉文章字數無法一次貼完
有意回答的大大們如果嫌文章太凌亂的話
我可以寄信至各位的信箱 謝謝^^
Update 17: 我想請問一下文章標題可以怎麼翻會比較好呢
又為何文章題目會如此的下?
Update 18: 那請問一下為什麼會用cowboy來形容Roger呢?
Update 19: 另外文中一些句子我想請問意思(該怎翻譯會比較恰當):
(1) Here we are
(2) two days is about all it takes for the typical movie star's ex-wives and estranged children to start hyping their soon-to-be-published books detailing what a jerk the guy was when the cameras shut down.
