Biden-Harris take reins in hard times
Later today, Joe Biden will take the oath of office and become the 46th president of the United States. A few minutes later, Kamala Harris will be sworn in as vice president, the first woman to hold that post.
Oklahomans are used to seeing members of our National Guard spending their weekends heading out for training. But this week they are putting their training to use in Washington, D.C., for one of the most important roles of our time — protecting our nation's Capitol.
There is an astonishing trend afoot, and if something isn’t done to stop it in its ugly tracks, your right to freely express an opinion is in jeopardy.
The new year is off to riotous start, is it not? There’s so much to say about what went down at the Capitol last week, all of which has been said before by others more eloquently than I ever could. I still am flabbergasted by what I saw unfold live on the air, and even more so by how quickly…
Last week was a bad one for right-wing crybaby culture. Scarcely had Boss Trump’s paranoid mob retreated from the U.S. Capitol than the whining began. My favorite thing on Facebook was a photo of two guilty-looking dogs welcoming their master at the front door: “We’re so glad you’re home,” t…
Twitter explained why it decided to permanently ban President Donald Trump: “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the acc…

On Tuesday, lawmakers gathered for our constitutionally-required Organizational Day to approve rules and elect leadership for the upcoming legislative session.
Regardless of how hard state and local health officials work, the lack of a coordinated national response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to hamper mitigation efforts.
You animal, you! Well, yes, we homo sapiens are animals, as dour scolds of human behavior ceaselessly point out. They reduce our existence to the nasty and brutish law of the jungle, insisting that selfishness and survival of the strongest is the natural order. The noted philosopher of anim…
First-time Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller could have drawn from the collective wisdom of countless thoughtful Americans as she addressed the group “Moms for America” at President Trump’s rally in Washington on Tuesday.
My most memorable New Year’s Day took place five years ago on a cold, clear morning in another life. We awoke to find a 30-acre lake where there had been pasture the night before. The Arkansas River had been rising ominously for days, and when it got high enough, it always backed up the bayo…
A recent story in The Atlantic pointed out something that most folks in Cherokee County already know: Many young people in their 20s and early 30s are returning home to live with their parents — at least, temporarily.

2020 comes to a close on Thursday. It has been a year to remember. In the not so distance future, there will be books written and movies made about 2020. Americans have become more acquainted with Zoom and on-line video meetings than they wanted to. They have eaten at home more. They have le…
