You would miss me


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

Me? Leave Oklahoma?

I am as Oklahoma as Will Rogers and red dirt. I bet you don’t like either one of them, either.

And, no, I can’t really get behind conservative groups who vote to cut off food to poor children and, at the same time, refuse to vote to raise the minimum wage. 

People who, instead of demanding that the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights be posted on government property, use taxpayers’ money and public property in an attempt to cram their religious beliefs down everyone’s throats.

People who think that their backward, narrow views have any place in the 21st century. Those conservative values? These people speak for Oklahoma? Believe me, you’d miss me. I’m kinda cute, in an Okie sort of way.
