    Bedlam Tailgating

    Do we know when they will let us set up for the Bedlam game? Surely they won't make people show up on Thanksgiving day?

    How is Oklahoma doing as a state?

    I moved (back) to Stillwater after over 25 years in the DFW area a little over six years ago. What I miss: Wide variety of restaurants and shopping--but to be fair Edmond is 45 minutes away and OKC and Tulsa are 90 minutes away. It could easily take an hour to get to a store or restaurant in...

    Lewisville ISD in Texas has over 53K students and encompasses 127 square miles. Arlington ISD has 63K students. Surely we could make some strides in consolidating somewhere.

    House expected to Impeach Trump ??..announcement at 3pm CST

    So theoretically, if Trump is impeached and removed from office, can he be reelected? Or I guess technically, elected again. The idea is somehow hilarious.

    Iran fires cruise missiles

    They are sending a message to Iran. Make it public, make it broad, and a lot of Iranians are going to be nervous going to work for a while.

    Dumb stuff Beto says

    And he also said that 83% of people support a nation wide gun registry--while he also supports gun confiscation! Uh, right!

    It's not video games, racism, or's family

    God's Peace, I really enjoy your perspective and agree that upbringing has a lot to do with it. My own rambling comments are this-- I've read recently that Oklahoma has one of the highest rates of grandparents raising grandchildren in the country. I can see this two ways--1) in other states...

    At Oberlin, a Tipping Point

    I'm butting into this conversation, but I would think that any victim or carrier of the disease would probably want to get some significant genetic counseling. I've wondered if medical advances have actually weakened the health of the human race over time and what the long term future holds...

    Seems like the freed slaves got the better end of that deal. I think they should pay reparations to the families of Union soldiers.
