A new look. Whatdaya think?

I’ve switched to a new theme, which I think is a bit cleaner and easier to navigate. I’m still tweaking it a bit, so don’t be surprised to see things get added, subtracted, moved or (temporarily) broken. If you find something not working as you think it should, a poke in my direction would be appreciated.… Read the rest

My 2009 nod to exceptional Oklahoma Bloggers

Last year I handed out (metaphorically speaking) some Oklahoma netroots blogger awards and really intended them to become an annual thing to do on my blogiversary (Thanksgiving weekend) but not only have I been a bad blogger this year, I’ve been a pretty sporadic reader of Oklahoma-based blogs as well. Considering my self-defined mission here (online and off), this is… Read the rest

All your emails are belong to Inhofe

A big part of the reason I haven’t been blogging much is that I just feel like I don’t have the ability or opportunity these days to do enough reading and research to post anything of value to the discussion.

Deadline looms for nominations in the 2008 Okie Blog Awards

Okie Bloggers, you have till midnight to make your selections, so hurry! I’m ashamed to say I had to leave some categories blank, because I just didn’t read enough (or maybe any) blogs on that topic. I guess I have a good excuse on the “family blog” one since I don’t have young kids around. But otherwise my only… Read the rest

A couple of progressive Oklahoma bloggers leaving state

I’m pretty bummed about the Oklahoma Netroots losing two bloggers in one week. John Sutter of Concrete Buffalo (formerly of the Oklahoman and its Go Green blog — which apparently has been deleted) got a gig in Atlanta is already on his way. He also did some great work for The Gazette while he looked for steady work that… Read the rest

I expect to see lots more incoming traffic now, because (it can be revealed, now that my evil plot has been realized) those boys are really radical pinko activists I smuggled in… Read the rest
