Missing the Old Testament

Scary PreacherI don’t write many posts about Bible stuff, or faith in general. As incoherent as my posts may be, I try to remain tethered to topics at least remotely related to public education.

Mostly, though, I’m simply not a good spokesman for Christianity – nor is that my intent here. It’s neither a sermon nor theology. It’s merely a layman’s reflection. 

Blue Cereal Candidate Profile: Melissa Tilley (D), Running for House District 50 - #OKElections16

Tilley - HD50

If you wanted to write a modern action-adventure screenplay set slightly in the future, centered around an ensemble cast, and including a feisty heroine epitomizing the best of Oklahoma’s roots and heritage, you’d pretty much have to create Melissa Tilley

If she didn’t already exist, I mean. Which she does. 

#OKElections16 Primary Runoffs - A Recap

This isn’t really a proper post so much as a summary. It’s also a stalling tactic until I can update the entire #OKElections16 section based on this week’s results. There aren't even cute visuals - I'm THAT tired. 

There were 13 primary runoffs on August 23rd – 7 for State Senate, 6 for State House. All of the Senate runoffs were Republican, 2 of the House runoffs were between Democrats. 

The Sins of Lisa Kramer

Lisa KramerWow. Kramer has pissed off some big money people. In any other year, I’d find this a bit bewildering. She’s far more conservative than I could ever be, and her Official Campaign Website makes it clear she’s all about limited government and applying her faith as the measure of most social issues. What could possibly - ?

Oh. There it is.

#OKElections16 Republican Primary Runoff - HD67 (UPDATED!)

Statewide Primaries were Tuesday, June 28th. We’ve officially begun the process of choosing who'll be setting state edu-policy for the next 2 - 4 years.

For those of you just joining the fun, members of the State House of Representatives are elected every two years - just like at the national level, every single one of them are up for re-election (or not) every time. State Senators are elected every four years, meaning half are up for re-election (or not) each time.
