Thunder up! 

The wind devastated three-fourths of the city of Joplin, Mo., and the two major papers in Oklahoma had the following banner headlines:

—Tulsa World: “Deadly twister hits Joplin”
—The Oklahoman: “Fans go the distance for OKC”

I remember the good old days when The Oklahoman printed the news and put their editorials on the front page. Now the front page is an extension of the sports page and all things politically correct.

Their idea of investigative reporting is trying to find out what is in their star basketball player’s backpack. I don’t know what is in there, but I can tell you what is not in there and that is a diploma from a major university.

They should be investigating what is wrong with college athletics, but they don’t have a clue.

I see the Tulsa World now sells for $1 in the Oklahoma City market. How long before The Oklahoman follows suit? After all, they are recession-proof.
