Steve Lackmeyer took a moment and wrote a powerful piece related to his recent interview with a Swedish radio network.
I reported on that 1995 attack. I’ve covered the recovery of downtown ever since. But I’ve always been a bit skittish about the whole thing.

On the second anniversary of the bombing I literally lost control of my emotional well being — I just couldn’t bear to watch the procession of victims’ relatives and survivors marching down Robinson Avenue.
Great stuff. And it gets even better from there. If you read anything on NewsOK this week, please read this.
