When you talk about transforming a narrative and changing a narrative, that is not something that you get to say and then just watch happen.

It was raining that morning.
Not a heavy rain, not drenching rain; a nuisance rain. It was the type of rain that fell just enough to make that air feel that gray, damp kind of cold.

Okla. — Let’s be Frank! What happened this past Tuesday at the Oklahoma state capital was pretty f–ked-up. Once again, state legislators had the opportunity to halt the pedagogue brain-drain that has haunted the state since 2008; but of course, Oklahoma leaders voted against a revenue bill that would have given state teachers their much needed and well deserved, although minuscule, pay raise of $3,000.
