      I grew up in Tulsa, went to OU and then worked for Conoco Oil in Ponca City  (City motto - "it's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here") in the early 80's, got out when I went to graduate school and in the ensuing 25 years I have never once considered moving back.  If I hadn't left then, by now I would have gone completely f-ing insane.  

      On an individual level, the people there couldn't be nicer, but collectively they are nuts.   When I saw that in 2008 Oklahoma was the state that voted the highest percentage for McCain that was enough to tell me that getting out had been the best thing to do.  Of course life is nothing if not ironic, so having settled in San Diego 20+ years ago, my congress critters have  been Duncan Hunter I and II and unless we Democrats get our collective butts together, I'll be looking at Bilbray beginning in 2012.
