It's interesting that you find Jock so unethical, yet your most likable character is the woman who married him and stayed married to him for something like 43 tears, until he died. If you consider Miss Ellie such a good woman, what better endorsement of Jock's character could there possibly be? Tom Owens, Jonas Culver - what did we know about them? We never even saw Jonas, but for the record, Jock did not have him committed -how could could he have? Jock wasn't kin to Jonas Culver! Sam Culver had Jonas committed. We saw Tom Owens in one episode where he tried to kill Bobby and Ray - wow what a great guy - and you take his side? Not saying Jock was perfect, nobody is, but when if you weight the good against the bad, the good so far outweighs the bad it's not even close. Jock was a very impressive, admirable, likable man.
