Things are continuing at a frantic pace. The Torts outline is going well. I hope to have it done sometime next week (I’ll post a link to it on here as soon as it is finished if anyone can get some good out of it.)

    Tomorrow should be a fun day. We are having our Founding Conventions for the Green Party of Oklahoma (There have been several active local Green groups previously but not an organized state party until now.) in Norman. I plan to be there part of it, then hit the books for awhile. Then towards dusk I’ll drive North to Oklahoma City for the State Capitol Dome Dedication ceremony. They are bringing in several big name entertainers (mostly pseudo-country stars like Bryan, Vince Gill, etc.) but they are promising to have a giant laser light/fireworks display that is supposed to be the biggest in state history.

    Also, if you are thinking of joining me at the Green Party convention, here is the planned agenda:
