Off to Oklahoma to Count Guns

Posted By on Fri, Aug 2, 2013 at 9:45 AM

Tracy and I - after an unfortunate, unforeseen delay - will finally be heading out to the wilds of the Oklahoma panhandle today - but just for a few short weeks.

A land where folks run for office promising to protect Oklahoma’s “borders,” and almost all candidates for higher office must proclaim their love of “Oklahoma values” - though I have never been able to find a definition of those values.

And now I will be able to count how many folks are carrying weapons openly. Unlike Fayetteville, where folks don’t carry artillery out in the open, I imagine I will feel so much safer.

As with my visits before, I will blog from our encampment.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
