The Oklahoman to Huck: Buzz off

Posted By on Mon, Oct 16, 2006 at 8:14 AM

Thanks to Oklahoma's venerable McCarville Report for news of another Oklahoma newspaper -- the editorially very conservative Oklahoman in OKC -- unimpressed by Gov. Mike Huckabee's attack on Okla. Atty. Gen. Drew Edmondson for going after Arkansas chicken industry pollution in Oklahoma waters.  The Tulsa World earlier blistered Huckabee.

Huckabee's visit to Tulsa and Oklahoma City to "boost his own presidential bid and trash" Edmondson, the editorial says, was political: "He's a lame duck who has an eye on the White House. As a conservative Republican, he conceivably would run well in Oklahoma. But he hurts his chances by failing to support actions that most Oklahomans want to restore quality to the water of its most scenic river."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
