Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

What I'd Like To See In Oklahoma

Figures, Case takes to Google Street View once again. Nobody can keep me off of it with a ten-foot (telephone) pole. I had a few thoughts about some Oklahoma highways.

I've seen that they have too many major highways in the countryside which intersect that do not have flashing beacons overhead. They don't even have yellow flashers. Oh, there are some scattered about in different parts of the state, but more often than not, caution is needed in the isolated areas. Given the creativity of the existing beacons currently used, perhaps Oklahoma can innovate a little bit out in the country. The reason isn't just safety (although that is the number one priority in high-speed areas), but also to help drivers better navigate their drives, as a number of U.S. and state highways in Oklahoma take 90-degree turns unexpectedly and veer away from multiplexes. Yes, there are assurance and directional signs, but there needs to be advanced warning, as well.

And it also wouldn't hurt to see some in the downtowns of the small towns who once had traffic signals there (Now why did they get taken out??!). Okies need to rethink and revive certain areas.
