Spring into insanity

This is love A Tulsa man, who crashed his truck into a tree last month, was seen running from the scene, and witnesses say he was drunk and being followed by his dog.
How about that? You’re drunk, you wrecked the car, you’re going to be arrested soon and your dog stays with you.
Now … think about your last car accident and the support your spouse gave you.
A woman staring at the BOK Center, said "it looks like a giant roll of duct tape."
C’mon, stick your tongue on the frozen metal pole. We’ll pay you. It’s tornado season, so before you start dodging airborne double-wides, think back to the winter ice storm. Remember, it was like 4 degrees, highways were closed, power outages, fires, stranded motorists. So how did OSU officials respond?
By giving away tickets to the Sooners-Cowboys hoops game!
Apparently, those devilish pranksters in Stillwater thought, “How do we get people to risk their lives tonight? Hmmm … what if we tempt them with free admission? Sure, they could die getting to the game, and the smart ones won’t come, but others won’t be able to resist.”
I am a well writer It was reported recently that Carrie Underwood will write more of the songs on her upcoming CD. Yes, at a time when media outlets are firing reporters and closing international bureaus, this was an actual news item.
Underwood says she’s getting more comfortable with her writing abilities.
I want readers of this column to know I am, too.

Could someone just stop his food? It was quite the legislative session for State Rep. Mike Ritze (R-Broken Arrow). First, trying to halt the presidential certification of Barack Obama, whom, he insists, is a foreigner, Ritze introduced a bill requiring anyone running for elected office to first show proof of citizenship. He then introduced legislation calling for a monument of the 10 Commandments, which he said he’d pay for himself, to remind Oklahomans, “where the state gets its laws.” (There’s a state law against coveting thy neighbor’s wife? Uh-oh! I’m in trouble.)
Broken Arrow, you must be so proud.
P.S. Inexplicably — and one of the reasons why Oklahoma is often a national punch line — a House committee voted in favor of the legislation; luckily, lawmakers can’t decide where to put it. (Here’s an idea: in Ritze’s back yard, next to his shredded Bill of Rights exhibit.)
More sanctimony at the Capitol Forget falling bridges, overcrowded schools, teen pregnancy and chicken waste — the real problem in Oklahoma is that kids aren’t reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
Enter Rep. Lewis Moore (R-Arcadia), who introduced a bill that would require them to say it … every day.
Moore says it’s appropriate to “show respect for our symbol of sacrifice and freedom.”
Sure, it’s appropriate, but required?! See, Representative, that’s the beauty of this country — we don’t have loyalty oaths. (There’s not even one in the 10 Commandments. Go outside your state office and read the monument if you don’t believe us.)
P.S. A House committee voted, you guessed it, in favor of the legislation.
