    I am a little confused. Since this was written by a copy editor, maybe he will clarify this.

    In the fourth paragraph, Rooster Cogburn is described as a "pseudo-lawman," yet in the seventh he is a US Marshall.

    Seeking an answer led me to the following on Wikipedia (concerning John Wayne's version):

    -----
    He is "the toughest marshal" working the Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) on behalf of Judge Isaac Parker,[2] the real-life judge of the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas (having criminal jurisdiction in the Indian Territory, as the bailiff repeatedly announces in both films).
    -----

    If his being alcoholic is what makes him a pseudo-lawman, large sections of our law-enforcement apparatus (and military, for that matter) appear to be wrongfully demoted.
