"Something smells in Oklahoma...."

That quote from opening lines tonight,

Coming soon,

A review of the Oklahoma City Gridiron Club's annual political spoof...attended tonight by Susan and I with Jill Kelsey. New blood, fresh blood has added to the singing, the dancing and the vigor, appropriately mixed with old timers' considerable talents.

Oh yes, I have at least four former students now acting their way across stage, and saw several others attending at the new Lyric Theater. Fun. And a first, I was introduced to the crowd as the director of the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame at UCO. I think I know which former student to blame. She's a knockout Sarah Palin, and has had wine onour back porch. Who are they?

More  tomorrow. This is one of those times it's good to be an Okie.
