At some point, media organizations will realize that Americans don’t believe political polls anymore. Here’s why: 1) Today, a CBS / New York Times poll revealed that Sen. Obama still has a double-digit lead over Sen. McCain. ( story here ) 2) Yesterday, Yahoo! News reported in a Reuters story that the two candidates were[…]

This morning, I dropped off my wonderful wife at the OKC airport, so she could return to NYC for the weekend. In more than two years of marriage, this will be our longest separation, both in time and in distance. The previous record was when she went to Tulsa for two days for a work-related[…]

Attention all up-and-coming politicians. This may not work for everyone, but it certainly works for me. If you want my vote (for anything ), then do not — I repeat, DO NOT — send me bulk mailers. Today, I got the usual mailer from a local politician. It was the third one I’ve gotten from[…]

Today, I was privileged to watch the Sasakwa Lady Vikings win the Class B State Softball Championship. This is the second year in a row that Seminole County has had a team win state (last year it was Konawa). Sasakwa’s freshman pitcher Marissa Shaffer pitched a seven-inning no-hitter against the #1 team in the state[…]

The good news is: I now have a new windshield in my car. The better news is: I didn’t have to pay for it. Last Wednesday (Sept. 24), I was covering the Konawa-Wewoka softball District Tournament at Konawa. After watching Konawa win the first game 12-0 (in a three-inning run-rule), I returned to my car[…]
