Tulsa's Newest Public Art: Woody Guthrie

In case you missed the grand opening this weekend, the Woody Guthrie Center is now open in Tulsa's Brady Arts District. With the opening of the Guthrie Green, the art gallery 108 Contemporary next door and more, this part of town is, well, severely hip.

Letterman Rips Sen. Inhofe for Newtown Comments

Comedian David Letterman didn't hold back last night in his criticism of Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, ripping the former Tulsa mayor for his recent (and quite idiotic) comments about the Newtown, Conn., parents who have been pushing for gun control legislation.

Unsurprisngly, the parents of the Sandy Hook school shooting victims have been outspoken about the need for background checks, limits on magazine capacity and other measures to control guns and gun violence.

But Inhofe recently claimed—without a shred of evidence—that it's all Obama's fault. He made them do it.

This is classic Inhofe, mouthing spurious right-wing talking points without regard to actual facts.

For his part, Letterman was having none of it, showing a portrait of a smiling Inhofe and naming him naming "Stooge of the Night." 

It's an "honor" richly deserved.
