Storyline

Mr. Hillary, the principal at the elementary school, requests a meeting with Mike and Carol, who suspect that what Mr. Hillary wants to discuss is some bad news concerning one of the kids. Indeed, Mr. Hillary's concern is a composition Bobby wrote on his hero: Jesse James, the outlaw. In addition, Bobby, pretending to be Jesse James, brought a cap gun to school. After Mike and Carol speak to Bobby about the issue, Bobby says that he believes he will grow out of his fascination with Jesse James, but his actions say otherwise. In trying to make Bobby see why Jesse James is not a historical figure to be emulated, Mike and Carol come to understand why Bobby would idolize someone like Jesse James. After doing some reading on Jesse James, Mike believes that Bobby having a chat with biographer Jethroe Collins might have the result he and Carol are hoping. Written by Huggo
