In Oklahoma, having more shoreline than California and more lakes than Minnesota,  #SafetyAfloat  is a thing.  These two might not have everything right, but they got the basics right.
 
A father and his son were thrown 40 feet when their boat exploded. What kept them safe, they were wearing flotation devices. #SafetyFirst
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a man and his young son escaped injury when the boat they were on exploded on Lake Texoma in southern Oklahoma....

Interdispersal Loop, +News On 6?  That's not even a word.  Try "Inner Dispersal Loop."
Tulsa police say the south leg of the Interdispersal Loop was closed as Tulsa firefighters talked a suicidal subject from the bridge.

"A series of "extremely dangerous" tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma, knocking out power and leaving a massive trail of destruction." You may be overstating the results based on what I saw along my commute, +NBC News​ , which is straight down the tornado track (or for that matter, live, which was apparently right in the middle of the track). I understand Sand Springs took it hard, but by daybreak, it was clear it could have been far worse.

I was at the Post Oak Lodge a few miles north of Sand Springs. No apparent damage on our side of the hiway.

It's been long enough since I saw Quantum Leap that it doesn't really phase me.  Either way he plays the same character in every show.

So, apparently, the score now is needle exchanges are suddenly good and the 14th Amendment is suddenly bad in Indiana.

+Associated Press Why do you hate Tulsa?  Comparing Tulsa to Portland like that's a good thing for Tulsa to be compared to such a backwater is egregiously insulting to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and everyone in that city and state.  I demand a retraction and an apology.

Classic greasy spoon on an iconic corner on Route 66. Nothing particularly remarkable, but it's consistently good food and a great hangover cure. Inexpensive; you definitely get your money's worth. Parking's in back if you didn't learn how to parallel park.

What I loved: Fursuit friendly, loves to host large groups, foul sensors turned on ("MARK IT ZERO!!"). What I didn't like: Random steps for no reason everywhere, which poses a tripping hazard when you're in fursuit and can't see down easily; scoring computers can't be used with paws on, and the touch sensors are a bit out of calibration.

Financial aid department will promise to find you only grants and scholarships, but then will sign you up for a student loan behind your back. Totally scammy school, and so much more expensive than state schools in the midwest.

Will definitely be coming back for more. Best state park I've ever been in. It's my home for at least 3 days every October for Oklacon. Park staff is nice, the facilities are the best I've seen in any state park. However, the bathrooms and showers in the Turkey Roost group camp are severely outdated and struggle with larger groups, and the Turkey Roost's overflow parking is difficult to get in and out of if you drive anything lower to the ground than a city SUV. I've been told that this is also among the most primitive of the Oklahoma State Parks, and even so, the amenities blow the doors off anything in the Oregon State Parks system. Word of warning, if fursuits or the furry fandom hits uncanny valley for you, probably a good idea to avoid it the weekend before Halloween annually when the convention is dominating the park and Watonga; the park hosts the largest outdoor furry convention in the world.

Pioneer Courthouse Square would be better, much better, if it wasn't horribly mismanaged. Concerts, beer tasting, sandcastle contests and other events that block off the entire square and hamper access to transit really should be held in Chapman Square. Pioneer Square was designed to be a public square and transit station, not an event venue, and it fails poorly at both when events beyond the tree lighting and new year's are attempted there.

Expensive but lousy food, bad service from everyone but Mike (the bellhop and shuttle driver), inconsistent housekeeping, broken Jacuzzi, bad wifi, no coffee maker in the suite, shuttle service is slow and an hour late if anyone other than Mike is driving. Casino has high minimums and cranky staff. Nosh Deli isn't actually a deli, but is an excellent source of food poisoning. This place is the exact opposite of the Hard Rock Casino Tulsa in almost every imaginable way.
