    Hello from Oklahoma.

    Hello all!

    I've been a city planner in Oklahoma for 5 years and just beginning my studies for the AICP exam. I'm looking forward to exchanging planning ideas and solutions with you all.

    Happy New Year!

    Welcome from SW OH!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Greetings from the Valley of the Sun. OKC is one of the most underrated city in the country IMO.

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Really, do the winds come sweeping down the plains?

    Welcome!

    I was just in Oklahoma over the holidays, my parents live in OKC. I got a Garth Brooks sushi roll in their town/suburb while visiting.

    I've only visited The Windy City once, but it had nothing on the winds in the Sooner State. It's a never ending bad hair day.

    Welcome from the mitten state
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
