More news, notes and fallout from Mike Hunter divorce / resignation scandal….

One of the first rules they teach politicians in PR 101 is to release good news– or damaging news about a rival or opponent – on a Monday. That way, the media will have a whole weekly news cycle to cover, analyze, and most importantly, promote the story, giving it the attention you want it to deserve.

The second, and perhaps more important rule, is to release bad news – or stuff you'd rather people forget – on a Friday, preferably before a holiday weekend when everyone, media included, are out binging on booze, sunshine and medical marijuana. That way, the story will more likely disappear into the mist like a diet at a cookout.

Mike Hunter apparently paid attention to that portion of PR class.

On late Friday afternoon, just two days after we first reported about his divorce and affair, and how it may all connect with the state's attempted bribery case against Stitt cabinet member David Ostrowe, Mike Hunter dropped the charges.

TLO Restaurant Review: Kaiser’s Grateful Bean Café

As funny as it seems—at least it was for me, as I sat there on the patio—in my many years of living in Oklahoma City, I had never once been to Kaiser’s Grateful Bean Café, 1039 N. Walker, or any other of its incarnations or iterations. But, after taking my lovable pup Sean to the Midtown Mutts Dog Park last Saturday, my friend and I figured that now would be as good a time as any to try it.

I vaguely remember Kaiser’s from high school, back in a more dangerous era when driving down to that area was usually putting your life at risk, but it was seemingly okay because you were near St. Anthony’s. My friend told me it was once a punk club, while I recall it being a vegetarian joint; it seems to have kept that wild spirit on the menu—I seem to remember that they served buffalo burgers on there.

Sadly, according to the guy behind the counter, they don’t serve them anymore.
