    Hey Peter, if they put Monica in it, I don't even care if The Lone Ranger shows up. But of course we're dreaming. They'll put someone like Dennis Richards in there as Tonto. Hey, don't laugh, she was a nuclear scientist so why not a Native American?

    If they replace Tonto with a female, there is no way in hell I would bother with such a PC-crapfest. That is just ridiculous. However, if they remain true to the show thematics, I would LOVE to see The Lone Ranger on the big screen.

    For me, the 1981 version spoiled the LR forever....

    Perhaps Rosie as Tonto ???? (ACK !!!)

    "WAG" may mean Wild A-- Guess. We use it in meetings, but put an "S" in for "Sophisticated".

    Is that a SWAG ?

    A "wag" is short for "a wagging tongue" ie someone speaking out when they probably shouldn't (in this case it could be some mailroom staffer or other opinionated person on the studio lot). Don't put too much faith in wags.
