There are plenty of people here in Oklahoma. You might recognize a few: Troy Aikman, Jim Thorpe, Woody Guthrie, Shawntel Smith, Paul Harvey, Leslie Nielson, Ron Howard, and a whole slew of astronauts, including Thomas Stafford, Gordon Cooper, and Wiley Post.

This Okie is sick and tired of the disparaging remarks posted about Oklahoma. Okies are not ignorant hillbillies, and we do get more TV stations that just the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Yes, the tornadoes are bad, but not as bad as the weather in California.

Note: This post was put up in response to a disparaging post about Okies that is no longer here.
