Brief Synopsis:
The Virginian, Ryker, Jennifer, and Jake the Tailor (who is also a Rabbi
looking for a flock) try to help a young couple who "have no choice" about
dating others when the girl's father, a prominent citizen in town, won't
permit his daughter to go with a boy he feels is "trash."  But in Granny
McDevitt's measure of a man, "a boy cuts off and a man begins when he
understands his responsibilities and takes them upon his shoulders without
whimpering or whining or any thought of running out." (bj)
