American Idol's favorite runner-up, Clay Aiken ran into some trouble over the weekend while aboard a flight to Tulsa to perform at the Brady Theater. According to the Associated Press, season two's Aiken and a woman sparred after the spiky-haired crooner rested his feet on the lady's armrest.

The flight-attendants apparently diffused the situation, and no charges were filed. Aiken later joked at his Saturday night Tulsa appearance that he was beaten up by a girl earlier that day.

What would you have done if Clay Aiken rested his feet on your armrest?

What? "Footloose" remake already? Why?

According to tmz.com, Hollywood is planning a "Footloose" remake. Based loosely on Oklahoma's own Elmore City, the 1984 Kevin Bacon-Lori Singer (yes, that's the name of the actress who portrayed his red-cowboy-boot-wearing girlfriend) was filmed in Texas.

After recovering from the shock of "Already? And why remake a classic?," the next thought is perhaps the Oklahoma Film Commission can persuade the head honchos to film it here!

Oooh! Who should star in the remake?

Yippee! Thanks to the Bricktown Association's announcement that during the midday parking will be free, it's now possible to dine in Bricktown for lunch without paying more to park your car than your entrée costs.

Do you think Bricktown parking should free all the time and not just at lunchtime? Has the cost of parking discouraged you from frequenting Bricktown?
