There was also an episode of Bonanza called "The Fear Merchants" which I watched this morning.
Season 1 Episode 20 Aired 30th January 1960.

Maybe could do with a re-run.....made me think "has nothing changed" since the 1860's quite a poignant episode.

Its on youtube if you want to find it

and just to keep it quzzical
What was the name of the character who was running for Mayor of Virginia City in "The Fear Merchants" :?:
