The many fashions of Saundra Naifeh
September 24, 2010
I’m writing a column tomorrow about former Edmond Mayor Saundra Naifeh’s comments about Las Vegas and Oklahoma City. One of the NewsOK commentors brought up an interesting point about Naifeh: why did we choose this particular picture of her to run with the story?
That’s a good question. She’s wearing kind... Read More
Sesame Street has Sesame Sense
September 23, 2010
Sesame Street officials have announced they won’t run a segment that singer Katy Perry did with Elmo because, you know, it was really horrible and not appropriate for children.
OK, so maybe those are my words and not theirs, but I think it pretty much summarizes what happened. The other day a colleague emailed... Read More
Chocolate-covered bacon? No thanks.
September 22, 2010
I should have gone with my gut instinct: do not eat chocolate-covered bacon.
But I was feeling adventurous, dangerous, stupid.
Another reporter here brought back some chocolate-covered bacon from the fair to share with whoever thought that would be a good idea. This is a picture of it here.
I haven’t had... Read More
Mega Drop doesn’t equal megadeath
September 20, 2010
OK, I’ll admit it: I’m absolutely petrified of heights. Terrified, horrified, wimpified of heights.
(My husband’s favorite story of me being scared of heights involves bluff jumping near my hometown of Mountain Home, Ark. He had just made a monumental leap of probably four stories. I was maybe 10 feet above... Read More
When you’ve got to get it right
September 19, 2010
I absolutely loved meeting and interviewing Frank Zaitshik, the guy whose company brings in everything for the Oklahoma State Fair. There was a quote I found in my notebook that made me smile. I asked him how he felt on opening day of the fair. I expected him to say relieved or glad or something like that. Nope. He... Read More
Immunity against flu doom
September 18, 2010
I used to roll my eyes at flu season. Everybody always freaks out way to much for a tiny bug that can make you sick for a few days. Then came the year when I got the flu twice. TWICE. Does that even happen? Apparently. After that, I became an anti-flu crusader. I write about it often:
Prevent getting the flu –... Read More
A note about state fair food
September 17, 2010
Things I will totally own tonight:
Pizza on a stick.A cinnamon roll.A stomach ache.
I cannot, cannot, cannot wait for dinner. (I use the word “dinner” loosely.
News of the day – mama grizzlies rejoice
September 16, 2010
Politics. Sarah Palin excites supporters in Tulsa. She also excites mama grizzlies.
Health. New research shows that smoking bans benefit kids with asthma. Research done by kids with asthma says, “Duh.”
Events. The state fair begins today. Pizza-on-a-stick: I’m about to own you.
Nonprofits. The United... Read More
Good show, Chadd McKee
September 16, 2010
Check out Scott Wright’s great column on Chadd McKee and the Tulsa Union volleyball team.
A scoring error left Bishop McGuinness four points behind Tulsa Union, when the team should have only been trailing by two. The refs wouldn’t correct the problem, so Coach McKee did. Hats off to him and the ladies... Read More
