Today, November 16, 2007 is the centennial for the state of Oklahoma. One hundred years ago, the Sooner State was admitted to the United States as a full and equal partner. Forty-five years and a couple of months or so later, I would breathe my first lungful of air in Oklahoma City. Yep, I've been alive now for over half the length of time that Oklahoma has been a state. Sobering thought!
In any case, it is time to say Happy 100th Birthday to the Great State of Oklahoma.
