The Green Hornet Strikes Again.

I love the Green Hornet. Next to the Shadow they are some of the greatest radio programs ever produced. A sequel to the Lone Ranger, has the great nephew of the Ranger doning a mask to fight crime. This radio program has spawned movie serials, comic books, a tv show staring Bruce Lee, and a movie a few years ago. The Green Hornet is still going strong may it go on forever.
