My 2 Cents: Governor Fallin's State Of The State Address

Posted: Updated:

It was a curious State of the State address today by Governor Fallin, but interesting. So much of the time speeches like that are filled with platitudes.

It's not often you hear the Chief Executive talk about re-purposing scrap iron from the old Crosstown Expressway.

Two of the Governor's proposals seemed to come out of left field, but they were intriguing. The first came as she was talking about our backwoods health rating here in Oklahoma.

To help, she proposes easing liability concerns so that the general public, moms and dads can head up to their kids schools and use their fitness equipment.

My kids are going to love it when I roll in with my cropped concert t-shirt and short shorts to knock out some benches.

Then she informed the Legislature that she'd signed an executive order making all state properties tobacco free.

And if that wasn't enough, she followed with a groan evoking announcement that she intends to convert the Capitol smoking room into a small fitness center.

So much for those smoke-filled back rooms, maybe they'll have to do their deals in a steam-filled sauna.

I know, disturbing visual.
