A Nov. 26 story in the paper detailed how the NBA lockout has impacted the Oklahoma City Thunder, but the Gray Lady wasted little time tweaking our town.
Illustrating the Thunders uniting influence, writer Tom Spousta quoted Oklahoma City resident T.J. Nance: Its the only thing we can agree on, other than conservative politics.
Huh? CFN has nothing against Mr. Nance or his right to self-expression, but he is factually incorrect. Sure, its pretty safe to deduce that most Oklahomans agree, but all? Cmon, were not that monolithic!
What chaps us is that the quote plays to a stereotype of Oklahoma that the Times which usually cant mention our state without invoking the Dust Bowl or Bible Belt absolutely loves.
Besides, we know that conservative politics isnt what really unites all Oklahomans.
What we all agree on, were fairly certain, is that Ranch dressing belongs on pizza, that Christmastime doesnt officially start until you hear the B.C. Clark jingle, and that Texas sucks.
