Stevie Nicks lipped off a major blunder last night during her Zoo Amphitheatre performance.

Not bothering beforehand to check the map, or check with any locals for that matter, Nicks said she likes to dedicate her song, "Landslide" to someone in the audience.

However, "The Gypsy" said since she did not know anyone in the audience, she would just dedicate it to her favorite Oklahoman, Bill Clinton.

Hmmm. Is that a compliment or insult?

A Wynnewood, Oklahoma man, out of prison after serving a partial sentence for kidnapping, chased his wife down the street and emptied a gun into her, according to police. Also according to police, he cut a tracking bracelet from his ankle. Should this man have been allowed out of prison under such conditions?

Radio Disc Jockey Don Imus recently referred to a predominantly African-American college women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos." He was suspended and then fired by the radio station for which he worked. Was the termination justified?

Does the Oklahoma City radio market have a potential Imus in the making?

Oklahoma 's Miss America Lauren Nelson helped N.Y. police officers nab cyber sexual predators.

Using a 14-year-old girl's profile, the native Lawtonian chatted up at least 10 men, four of whom were arrested, the Associated Press reported, while another six conversed with Nelson.

The sting operation was taped for an "America's Most Wanted" segment airing locally at 8 p.m. Saturday on KOKH-25, Cox Cable channel 12.

Way to go Lauren!
