The AltTulsa gang has been lying low in recent months, holding our tongue on most Tulsa and Sooner state matters.
But we were roused from our slumber this week by a campaign mailer from mayoral candidate Kathy Taylor. According to the flyer, "crime has spiked [in Tulsa] this year" and Mayor Bartlett has been neglecting the issue.
Instead of fighting crime, Taylor's mailer claims, Bartlett has been "Facebooking."
Yes, Sooner fans, "Facebooking" is now a verb—and, in this case, not one that flatters the incumbent mayor.
According to Taylor's material, the mayor's been "Facebooking" about playing the harmonica, tailgate parties and (really!) Shark Week.
We've got nothing against the harmonica, but we do take exception to Bartlett's endorsement of Shark Week. It's silly.
Speaking of silly, we also think "Facebooking" should not be turned into a verb. Facebook is the brand name for a social media company. It's not a verb.
