Thank God for that?

While the wide-open plains of Oklahoma may not be for everyone, they do breed a tough, independent sort of person. The kind of person who puts his boots on every morning, looks into that wide blue sky and wonders what the day will bring. Nature is in your face in Oklahoma, not to be trifled with.

Senator Jim Inhofe is a son of Oklahoma, small businessman, veteran. He doesn't take the accepted wisdom at face value, nor should he.

A small English village, with the pitter patter of constant rain, mummy's state looking over one's shoulder, and monotonous tea breaks, may be for some. But it is a world away from a fulfilling life lived by independent, hard-scrabble Okies. I know what I would prefer.
