I wrote the following post in 2013. The advice given is still, I believe, important, even though I look at the source material through a different lens. When I was younger Smokey and the Bandit was a fun, action-filled adventure with high speed automobile chases, C-B lingo, and country music. Watching it now is almost painful. I see racism, sexism and misogyny. Still, I stand by my assertion that we all have something to learn from the Bandit's sidekick, Cledus Snow. I hope you agree.
