Barbary Coast, Part 2

Synopsis
Radio series. In this episode about corruption on the Barbary Coast, the Lone Ranger is giving advice to his nephew, Dan, before sending him away to school. He begins ‘Years ago, a writer in England named Shakespeare, wrote advice for a father to give his son. I can’t improve on it. Nobody has ever been able to improve on it’. He then recites Polonius’ advice to Laertes (Act I, iii). The sentimental delivery of the speech is rescued by the gravity of thought.
