I was watching the news on Tuesday and heard Vice President Mike Pence mouth the old homily that the government “is here to see that the community is rebuilt bigger and better.”
Wait a darn minute.
Who says the people want a bigger community? Sure, they may like a better community but that can be done without urban sprawl and crowding.
“Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above…don’t fence me in” should be our state’s official song, not the sappy musical whistler “Oklahoma!”
