This is kind of cool.
Despite a recent judicial ruling in her favor, and just days before she had to produce a “deliberative process” log of all “privileged” records, Governor Mary Fallin released all emails and documents related to our open records request and lawsuit.
They emailed the records, along with the following letter, to our ACLU legal team.
Here’s the letter (PDF):
In all honesty, I haven’t had time to review the records or gather my thoughts on all this. This has the feeling of a victory – Hell, we did get the records released – but the manner in which they were released, the timing of it, and the steps we had to take to get them, shows the fight for open records fairness in this state is far from over, and somewhat defeats the purpose of the open records act.
Basically, the release of the emails doesn’t mean our lawsuit or fight is over, but it does mean we accomplished one of our original goals: to get those damn records released.
We’ll have more what all this means, etc., but in the meantime, here are all those secret emails, documents, cc:’s and attachments that Mary’s been hiding for the past year or so.
As if you need another reason not to shop at Walmart.
In what is obviously a sign that either the apocalypse is upon us – or that Samuel Jackson is really desperate for some work – a Bristow family discovered a damn rattlesnake hiding a case of cheap bottled water that they recently purchased from a Tulsa-area Walmart.

I recently stumbled across this clip of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force gang playing bar trivia on YouTube. In case you don’t do drugs, Aqua Teen is one of the best cartoons of all time.
I should probably clarify something. Please don’t form an opinion of the show based on that one clip! Trust me, ATHF is not that bad. I think the Love Mummy or Willie Nelson spider episode may be my favorites. Watch them. Also, if we don’t get “Wayne the Brain” or “The One Eyed Wonder Weasels and Their Two Balls” as team names this week, I’m going to be incredibly disappointed.
Regarding this week’s trivia, we only have two weeks left of qualifying for our $1,000 League of Champions Playoff. To help teams make one last push, we are offering double league points (a.k.a Suttons) at all TLO Trivia Night venues. This is a pretty big deal, because the top 8 teams will get an automatic birth to the $1,000 League of Champions Title Match. The teams placed 9th – 20th will have to compete the week of the August 25th to earn an entry.
Before we get to those standings, here are five totally relevant trivia questions.
1. What popular 1986 NES sports game was named after a foul?
2. Double Fantasy was the final studio album by what musician?
3. Within 25… How many calories are in a one serving size of Double Stuffed Oreos?
4. Which Nobel Prize winner published the autobiography Double Helix in 1966?
5. Multiple Choice: According to a random internet site, which of the following celebs does not wear a DD cup size? Scarlett Johansson Kim Kardashian Katy Perry Jessica Simpson

School is starting up all across Oklahoma. That means kids are making new friends, parents have more free time, and teachers are forced to get off their lazy asses and get back to work.
To get in the “Back to School” spirit, I have compiled a list of school supplies every Oklahoma student needs to have a great year at school and hopefully learn to read beyond a third grade level.

People are being shot by tornadoes at an alarming rate. These fantastic “blankets” will keep your kids safe from being shot by a tornado.
As the teacher above seemed to prove, it is very important to wear pants to school.
