Godwin aside, the commenter is right.
But here’s why I think things won’t change, and for the most part, the people here don’t want a change.
The local government is dirty, mobbed up with the energy tycoons and real estate developers and so is the sick joke of “media” in Oklahoma City.
If some intrepid journalist in Oklahoma tried to investigate the local big-money goings on, they’d be shut down and burned in a heartbeat, UNLESS the powers that be could
somehow use it for personal gain.
We live in a fascist town and sadly, most of the people here either embrace it (out of greed or pride), or are too ignorant to know any better.
As soulless and awful as that may be, at least the economic horror show (now showing on the coasts) is still slow to reach us, just like fashion and music trends.
Sorry bro, but you can’t fight city hall, it’s too strong, too dirty and too well insulated.
But don’t ever stop and don’t take any guff from these bastards!http://oklahomabaptistfemalemayor.blogspot.com/2011/01/oklahoma-baptist-female-mayor.html

One of their hardest trials took place in the very beginning, even before the storefront on Reno, when the ministry was housed in an old Hospital, the Capital Hill Clinic on 15th Street and South Walker.
It was January or February, and bitterly cold, when the nightly gospel music was interrupted by armed men at the door. Mayor Patience Latting had initiated a campaign to get the transients out of town, and suddenly Sisters Ruth and Betty were facing officers of the Oklahoma Police Department and Fire Department, who barged in the door and began shutting down the shelter. Men and women were forced out into the cold, and when Sister Betty protested, she was thrown against the wall and held there while the evacuation took place.
