    The rebels opposed the darkness.

    ... they all oppose "the darkness".

    BTW, the Texas Rangers, the law enforcement agency not the baseball team, is going to have to sue everyone because they opposed the darkness before any other rangers mentioned above.



    Their time will come ...

      It appears that the British Royalty has prior claim on the term.

      The term Ranger first appeared in 13th-century England. Rangers were officials employed to "range" through the countryside providing law and order (often against poaching).

      The Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry was raised in the summer of 1794 as the Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Cavalry, and is the fourth senior regiment of Yeomanry.

      The Regiment did not see active service until a mounted squadron was sent to South Africa in 1900, followed by another squadron a year later, earning the Sherwood Rangers their first battle honour.

        Nice post, Dan. They ripped off Tolkein, too.
        "And what kind of head of Security would I be if I let people like me know things that I'm not supposed to know? I mean, I know what I know because I have to know it. And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. " And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of Security will not report you for doing so."
        "Because you won't tell yourself about it?"

        "I try never to get involved in my own life, too much trouble."
