Well, when elected politicians are granting special favors for their buddies and saying no to everyone else for the save favor, it's up to the voters to exercise some civic responsibility by voting them out.

It hurts to see negative comments about Oklahoma. And it hurts to see that some people have been treated badly here. I really wish that hadn't happened to them, and honestly believe those are exceptions, not the rule.

As a person who grew up in Oklahoma, lived in DC for two years, moved back to Oklahoma for five more years, and recently moved to Dallas, I'd like to say how MUCH I now see that Oklahoma has to offer compared to other places. Beautiful sunsets....great traffic & commute times....low cost of living....a great sense of family & friends. And yes, our economy is much healthier than the rest of the nation right now. My favorite part about Oklahoma? The air. I swear, it smells so good & clean, especially when you return from big cities. And when you get out to rural Oklahoma or the lake, ahhh....breathing in that air is truly a simple pleasure.

Does Oklahoma have challenges? Sure. So does every place else. But as a native Oklahoman, I really think we've made HUGE strides in the past few years and it's only getting better. I think Oklahoma's star will continue to rise & it's a great time to move there.

To the original poster, OKC is a good place to live and the mulitmedia field, in my experience, has a shortage of talented folks, so I think you'd do well in a job hunt. If you're wanting a more progressive/urban feel, try Norman or Edmond. If you're wanting a more suburban feel, try Yukon. If you want rural, try Piedmont or Choctaw. Good luck!

Well, I am all that smart, and I've lived/worked in 9 states. I've yet to find a state that doesn't have an embarrassing past, (listen to those skeletons rattle!), or major problems at present. We could spend all day bemoaning what we are or are not. Life is sweeter when we look on the positive side, and use our brains (homebody or otherwise) to make a difference in our world.
