He has been admired by many and I'm one for sure. His wit was so profound and like I said previously, still timely to this day. A great American for Sooners to be proud of.
Thanks for the additional information. He is a fascinating person.
Just for the record, I'm a Boomer, not a Sooner. The Boomers crossed the starting line at the boom of the cannon. The Sooners jumped the start and cheated to get a head start on the law abiders. My grandfather was an infant, laying in the bed of a wagon when his parents took off on the Land Run.
And anyway... I went to Oklahoma STATE University.
