Oklahoma OK

It's sad but true that when I think of Oklahoma I think of Sally Kern, the vocal state legislator so terrified of gays she'd rather have her hair cut by Osama bin Laden.

That's why it's terrific when good news comes out of the Sooner State. Yesterday the Tulsa school board voted to add sexual orientation to its nondiscrimination policy for students, staff members and parents. The vote was unanimous.

Kern, a former teacher, must be itching to rap some knuckles.

In June, the Tulsa City Council and the Tulsa City-County Library Commission added sexual orientation to their anti-bias policies.

These dominoes have to be driving Kern wild. Is Tulsa lost?

We can only hope.
