    before everybody goes into pissing match mode in this thread that the diarist's own block quote says "local authorities" are forcing them to hold their protest there. I've been to OK many times and don't find that difficult to believe.

    My tribe, the Cherokee, forced to die on the Trail of Tears, were not relocated to Oklahoma because of its economic opportunities and scenic beauty or the sensitivities of the locals to Native Americans.

    I hope, beyond hope, that this diary doesn't turn into some stupid pro-Obama, anti-Obama bash because this is on Oklahoma and they shouldn't get a pass while we all get sidetracked.

    I can just about forgive the Brits for starting our revolutionary war and burning DC to the ground during the war of 1812 for giving us Led Zeppelin.
