OK Supreme Court justices call out Attorney General for “Abdication of Duties.”

Score one for the good guys at OG&E!

The Oklahoma Supreme Court approved yesterday an $800,000,000+ bond for OG&E to recover expenses from the record-breaking February 2021 cold spell / Kevin Stitt ski trip. It will cost customers about $3 a month for the next 28 years.

More of a formality than anything, the bonds were approved by an 8-o margin, but in concurring opinions, several justices left scathing critiques of spineless Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor, who instead of representing consumers against the powerful energy conglomerate, basically bent the knee and let his puppet masters at OG&E rip off Oklahomans for the next 28-years.

In a concurring opinion by Justices Douglas Combs and Noma Gurich, they claim Attorney General John O’Connor – naturally, a Kevin Stitt appointee – “failed to litigate legitimate points” against the bonds and even accused him of “Abdication of Duties.”

TLO Restaurant Review: Butcher BBQ Stand

Editor’s Note: Before we get to this TLO Classic Food Review, I wanted to pass along that, all things considered, Louis is doing better! He’s still working hard with physical rehab and speech therapy, and as he continues to recover from his stroke, we’re going to republish some of his classic reviews from over the years.

With average BBQ still simmering in the local news cycle, I thought we’d take a trip back to Louis – and Sean’s – May 2021 trip to the famed Butcher BBQ Stand located off Route 66 in Wellston. It may not give you meat-sweats, but it will definitely leave you feeling hungry.

Enjoy…

 

Country Meat: A Long-Awaited Lunch at the Butcher BBQ Stand

Well over a year ago, when pandemics like Covid were barely a dripping-wet newborn calf, Patrick asked me to go out and try the famed Butcher BBQ Stand, 3402 OK-66 in Wellston, interested if the accolades and awards they’ve accrued were well earned, at least by my gelatinous gullet. Of course, I missed my opportunity then.

Famously featured on the TLC (and eventually Destination America, whatever that is) television show BBQ Pitmasters, Butcher BBQ gained fans from all over for their winning meats and sides courtesy of David Bouska and his son Levis, earning a sauce-covered name in Oklahoma for their roadside stand.
