""I love to see Tolerance....this is HUGE for a state like Oklahoma!" "Jeanie Willis

On the "Let's Talk Transit" public meetings on downtown transportation:
""bike lanes, anyone?" "Bill Ries

""How about bus service further out NW expressway!!!" "Katrina Mac Dow Wallace

""I can't spell the sounds of frustration I'm making right now!" "Kimberly Noe
""She is why out-of-staters think Oklahomans are intolerant." "Cerra Byrd
""I am unsure what lifestyle she is referring to. The one that works, pays taxes, raises children, shops for groceries and clothing, eats at restaurants and goes to movies?" "Riff Randall
""When I moved to the US (OK) I had no idea that this area was branded so intolerant. Sure I heard stories and rumours, but as it turns out, it can be worse than the rumours. If you're white, married and straight you're fine." "Gordon Hudson
""I know alot of straight people that should have this 'special right' revoked because they do it so often.""Alycia Rivard-Massey

""Civil Rights has nothing to do with endorsing a lifestyle." "Tom Kovach
""As a homosexual millionaire, I find this article very troubling." "Amanda Knowles
""Sally Kern and her ilk CONTINUE to make it embarrassing to be from Oklahoma. We MUST get to the polls and fight this kind of backwards malevolence, or we will be stuck even further behind the rest of the country." "Carrie Strong
""Seems to me this state and country have 1001 problems more important to focus on than gay marriage."
"Sean Goade
""I don't know what's more embarrassing - that she's the Oklahoma version of Sarah Palin, or that the people in her district keep voting people like her in. Ye Gods." "Iris M. Gross
