Okie Bloggin', Take 4

Another installment of Okie Bloggin'. Not as daring as rasslin' a big ol' catfish from the bottom of a stream, perhaps, but still, all in all, a valuable character-building experience ...

Chaz at dustbury ponders the gender implications, if there are any, of the bloggers and linkers. I never really thought about it, but now that you mention it, I have noticed ...

The Joker's Wife has a bad case of pottymouth. Either that, or she and her husband, Otto, are just having some innocent roll-play (and we do mean "roll" with two L's)

On Okie Funk, Kurt discusses the reality vs. myth of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath and what it means for Oklahoma. Considering the enduring, and unjust, bum rap the classic has gotten from my home state, this should be required reading for all Okies -- the book and the blog post.

Are all doctors dillholes? Lip Schtick's LilRed, who is likely grieving OU's loss at the moment, weighs in with a resounding "No." We'll concede, this sounds like one o' them good docs.

Reflections in d minor admits that Lynn is addicted to stuff.

This Is Class Warfare examines the implications of a recent study on the biases of the big cable news networks. Guess who might not be all that fair and balanced?

The Daily Bitch's aka_monty is happy to report (as are we) that, yes, people with differing views can disagree without dissolving into shouting matches.

Speaking of bitch, A Fistful of Fortnights also has something to bitch about.

The USAF wife of Great Googly Moogly shamelessly shills for Adagio tea -- but, then again, she does use the phrase "cut to the chase," which we'll accept as shameless shilling for us.

The proud Okie of Oklarama, that lovable OKPartisan, singles out a certain local "society" newspaper to wonder when "affluent" became synonymous for "beautiful." And no, cosmetic surgery doesn't count ...

Elsewhere, OKPartisan (the one and the same) on Blue Dot Blog reflects on all that hoopla surrounding same-sex unions, and wonders "why not gay marriage?"

Life and Deatherage ponders Republican Party ideology and the Terri Schiavo story.

Dr. Pants of Wholesale Pants Warehouse fame tells us all about having a ball.

The chicks from l'esprit d'escalier are having a rocky time of it. Hang tough, ladies. We're praying for you.

It's another birthday at It's Not Easy Being Green. Oh, how I miss the days when 25 sounded old to me...

Leila M., the proprietor of Sister Scorpion, discovers the dubious acumen of TV reporters. I don't wanna say "I told you so" -- especially since I didn't (not technically, anyway) -- but, what the hell? Told you so.

Okiedoke's Mike isn't a proponent of drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, but he wonders what in tarnation Sen. Barbara Boxer is thinking in her push for a boycott of pro-ANWR drillin' firms.

The Left End of the Dial rues the Iraq War, what got us there and where the hell we go from here.

Oklahoma City's Alliance for Emerging Professionals is on the mind of one Downtown Guy.
