HI-YO-NADER The masked man and "Hi-yo-Nader" derive from the mask wearing Lone Ranger and his trademark call, "Hi-yo-Silver". The Lone Ranger was a popular radio, film and television hero, first seen in 1949. He maintained his anonymity while saving the west from greedy evil doers. In 1974, decades before running for President, Ralph Nader was frequently compared to the Lone Ranger. He was widely regarded as the protector of the worker and consumer and the enemy of the automobile companies and other corporations. Nader's work over the years has included the creation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).
