While it's a "liberal" political blog, he articles don't call names, but offer opinions of facts and trends in this very conservative state. though now an English professor, his background as a newspaper reporter shows in everything he writers.
His most recent article is a response on OU President David Boren's warning of the death of public higher education. I think it's a must read, because both Boren (a conservative, a scholar, a former governor and senator and I think the most powerful person in Oklahoma) talk about facts I see even here at UCO, such as our so called "profit-share" of summer funds with departments. That is part of the "corporate model" referred to in the article, one that could lead to the death of public higher education, and make it accessible only to the rich.
So here, check on the link for an analysis of a chilling trend in Oklahoma higher education, "Boren's lament."
