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.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
