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.

Be excellent to one another, and party on, dudes! - Abraham Lincoln (Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure)
