    1945 Football National Championship Team

    Thank you! I know that he was the 1929 Oklahoma player of the year (from Bristow). He also played on Mr. Iba's first basketball team.

    Court rules against Colorado cake shop in same-sex marriage case

    This isn't as far fetched as you're making it out. If I have an option to choose between two businesses and one is operated by an OSU alumn, I will always choose the OSU connection. If I walk up to a business flying an OU flag or with OU signage but none from OSU, I move on. I support...

    1945 Football National Championship Team

    Thanks for posting--the history is amazing! My grandfather played football (and basketball) at OAMC in 1930 - 1935. I wish we had some of this memorabilia from him.

    What is OSU's Plan to Reduce the Cost of Higher Education?

    You also have the cost of technology at every step along the way. A classroom 40 years ago was stocked with a blackboard and chalk and likely wasn't air conditioned. Now they have amazing technology which requires constant updating and technical support. There was an article about the online...

    A Big Mac Attack, or a False Alarm?

    I'm not a doctor, but I have a hard time believing that any particular food would have a significant effect on your liver after 30 days--some weight gain, maybe.

    Shooting at Texas High School

    Question--is anyone familiar with European / Canadian / Austalian, etc. laws regarding mental health. We have a LOT of severely mentally ill people in the US and generally can't force them to take meds and can't force them into treatment. Do other 1st world counties take this same approach?

    Report Temporary Protected Status to be removed from 57,000 Hondurans

    I think we are saying the same thing, actually. If the Hondurans were here temporarily, the government should have perhaps renewed their status once and said start preparing to return. We aren't renewing the status again. If the US was going to allow them to stay indefinitely, there should...

    Because I'm black, don't assume I'm a democrat

    Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times: "Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending...

    Oklahoma teachers planning to strike

    If the school districts / school boards were fiscally responsible, they would consolidate out of self interest. Imagine a funding plan like this (I don't know real dollars)--The State says each district receives $40 / per day of student attendance. That's $7200 per student for a 180 day year...

    So how many of you would turn them in? Or pay the fine?

    Oklahoma teachers planning to strike

    I saw that in the paper this morning too. But it said that the OEA is opposed to local control of the education funds. It seems that an easy solution to all of this is that the State provide each school district with a base allocation based on student count and then let them raise additional...
