Pickin' and grinnin'

Betcha didn't think I could work the word "rhinotillexomania" into an Urban Tulsa Weekly column about how much the downtown sports arena is going to cost us, did ya?

Also in the new issue of UTW:

G. W. Schulz has a very funny take on local news and the November ratings sweepstakes. He challenges TV station problem-solvers with a really hard math question. And he names names: What TV newsreaders are speeding through your neighborhood and endangering your children? Tune in at 10!

Barry Friedman has some meditations on cartoon plagiarism, cow tipping, and whether Bill LaFortune thinks the doctrine of the deity of Christ is a petty matter.

For the Thanksgiving Day cover story, Katharine Kelly asks, "Why aren't we happier?" Possibly because we're having turkey instead of Billy Sims Barbecue, which she also reviews in this issue.

Finally, UTW wants to provide Christmas gifts for 100 of the 1,200 kids in foster care in our area. Click here to find out how you can help between now and December 5. Of course, the best gift of all would be to adopt a child in permanent foster care, and each issue of UTW spotlights children waiting for a home.

Pick up a copy today!

UPDATE: Bobby has a helpful set of footnotes for my column.

Good one Michael. Since its Thanksgiving, I'm thankful that we live in a place where we can talk about rhinotillexomania in the open without fear of reprisal. I'm sorry that there's not a telethon.

Since 2 insurance companies were involved in the purchase of Great Plains Airline "creative financing" deal making when former Gov. Frank
Keating was governor -- Frank Keating who conveniently just happened to get an extreme elaborate pay raise compared to what he made as Gov.of Oklahoma, (don't think Frank was a CLU when he got that massive pay raise from Gov. to automatic job offer to of all things Pres. of American Council of Life Insurers)
I think it would be interesting for Chris Medlock
that is doing "reporting" on the Great Plains Airline and on looking into "BOK Center" which is actually being primarily funded by the TULSA TAX PAYERS! How about having the Securities and
Litigation of the American Council of Life Insurers in Washington, DC where Frank Keating is
now President -- have Frank Keating seek out the
two (2) life insurance contracts and audit the financial terms (in the Great Plains financial deal) in accordance with the Public Company
Accounting Oversight Board. The Great Plains Airlines / BOK loan should continue to be looked at.

Should be interesting!
