Not Sure This Will Go Over Big in Bartlesville

But Hank Hanegraaff says Heaven Is for Real is a dangerous diversion.

Love That Big Sis

You may remember that Oliver calls Mary Margaret "Ghee." Well, this morning Ollie and I were walking to the park and the following conversation ensued.
Dad: "Why should you glorify God?" 
Oliver: "Because he made me and takes care of me." 
Dad: "He does take care of you, doesn't he?" 
Oliver: "Actually, Ghee takes care of me."

Charles Krauthammer Wows OKC Crowd

Susie and I were honored to meet Dr. Charles Krauthammer at the OCPA dinner Thursday night, where more than 950 folks gave the good doctor a standing ovation both before and after his remarks. We could not have been more pleased to sit at the Koch Industries table (especially on the same day this excellent piece appeared).

'We Didn't Get Elected Just to Cut Ribbons, Kiss Babies, and Hold Office'

It’s been said that there are two types of people in politics: those who want to be somebody great, and those who want to do something great. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is the latter. Last week in New Orleans, he was asked this question (submitted by an Oklahoman):
Governor, a number of the red states and their Republican governors seem to have squandered some opportunities for great policy achievements. How did you keep Louisiana focused to achieve all the goals that you've been able to accomplish?
Unsurprisingly, Gov. Jindal knocked it out of the park (go to the 41:38 mark). I encourage you to watch the entire speech.
