Oklahoma students risked their lives to help light Mary Fallin’s Christmas tree

Yesterday, an Ogle Mole sent us a couple of pics from Mary Fallin’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the State Capitol. The event took place on the south steps of the crumbling building. Here are the pics:

How sweet…and dangerous. Check out what the south entrance to the capitol usually looks like:

Major Bummer: Medical Marijuana won’t be legal in Oklahoma anytime soon.

It looks like we’re going to have wait a little bit longer for medical marijuana to be legal in Oklahoma. Earlier today, the Tulsa World reported that the Oklahoma Senate will not schedule a study on the for some reason controversial issue:

Marijuana advocates will have to wait another year to try to get their discussion in front of Oklahoma legislators after a committee chairman announced this week he would not schedule the interim study.

Following Arkansas’ near passing of medical marijuana on Nov. 6, Oklahoma marijuana advocates – including the leader of the Tulsa branch of National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws – were in high hopes of getting an interim study approved to discuss bills put forward by state Sen. Constance Johnson, D-Oklahoma City, aiming at legalizing marijuana for medicinal use.

That sucks. Because I struggle with, uh, anxiety, pain, and boredom, I also had “high” hopes this interim study would be approved. Oh well, at least non-medical marijuana is readily available and abundant in this state.

Also, I had no clue there was a Tulsa chapter for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Hell, I didn’t even know there was an Oklahoma Chapter. I would schedule a fundraiser for them to help fund a state question petition drive, but I just don’t have the motivation to do so.

Anyway, here’s the excuse Sen. Brian Crain, R-Tulsa, gave for not scheduling the study:

Aubrey McClendon is a finalist for the Worst CEO of the 2012

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for Aubrey McClendon, we were alerted to this bit of information by an Ogle Mole.

The Motley Fool is currently in the middle of a contest to find the Worst CEO of 2012. It’s kind of like “Worst of OKC” combined with “Ogle Madness,” only not nearly as cool, expansive or popular. The contest started a few months ago with eight CEOs and is now down to just two finalists. They are Chesapeake’s Aubrey McClendon and the guy who’s ultimately responsible for this…

Here’s a drawing of Emily Sutton to brighten or terrify your morning

Usually I spend my Wednesday nights writing stuff for you all to read, but I went to the Thunder game and booed James Harden instead. Then when I got home and opened up my PC I heard an explosion. Fun night.

Anyway, because of the game, several $7 Chesapeake Arena beers and a wasted 30 minutes listening to a boring iPhone police scanner app, I’m going to pull a John Rohde and mail in this post. It’s still pretty decent, though. It’s a drawing of Emily Sutton that some dude posted on Twitter:
