Ragtime Cowboy Egolf

It's no "Potato Song" but Rep. Brian Egolf just sang a verse of "Home on the Range" on the floor of the House.

Some Republicans had been razzing Egolf, who sponsored House Memorial 27, which declares today "National Day of the Cowboy."

It's true that "cowboy" isn't the first thing you think about when you think of the well-dressed Egolf.

But here's a little secret: I happen to know that the Santa Fe Democrat is a major fan of Marty Robbins' Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs.

So here's one for Egolf, Marty and cowpokes everywhere. Happy Cowboy Day!
