Obama came to Oklahoma. Our newsroom sent one of our photographers out to get photos. His captures had us doubling over in laughter. All we could imagine was Obama flirting with the audience...
hence the photo. Enjoy.
I am the person with whom you had dinner and conversation at the Columbia Night event, and I want to let you know what a pleasure it was to meet you. You are a lovely, accomplished, mature young lady, and it was doubly gratifying to learn that you are a believer.
I am enjoying reading your bylines in the paper, but I also wanted to mention something about the last half of that evening (at the show). After I returned from the ladies’ room, I looked around for you but did not initially see you in the line (looked everywhere but there, I guess). I am not one to cut in, so I went to the back of the lines, which was a somewhat confusing configuration. Then it looked like you were given a special seat down front, as you should have been, and I saw that quite a few rows were reserved. So I did not try to come down front either, and I’m sorry that I did not get a chance to say good-bye and to tell you how much I enjoyed your company. I have not forgotten our meeting and wanted to send you some encouragement and my regards.
May God bless your life as well as your endeavors with the Norman Transcript and beyond. I’m sure you will do well, both professionally and personally. You are blessed already since you are obviously happy with your work and your life.
All the best to you!
