I don't know why I have never thought of blogging about this, but I'm doing it now. If you have never picked up a copy of The Oklahoma Observer, I urge you to do so. There is probably a copy available at your local library. This small paper is a champion of education, realistic compassionate thinking, and the power of the people to speak truth to power and so influence those in power to do better work for the general good.
Here is the link: http://okobserver.net/about/ Read through the description of the paper's mission and history as well as the many awards it has won over the years. You can get The Oklahoma Observer in paper form, once a month, or on the internet. This month's issue is particularly important in this election year. There is much at stake, both nationally and in our individual states. It is imperative that we become well informed and look past today, toward the larger picture of our nation's future.
