Thursday morning I will be joining other reporters for a tour of the shelter set up at Fort Sill for 1,100 children who crossed the borderillegally. Imm frustrated to say the least that cameras are banned, and we can't ask any questions on the tour. Here's what you had to say about this.

Sue in Stillwater first: "Honest people and operations do not prohibit questions and recording devices."

Mark from Cashion: "The media has been telling people only what the media wants you to hear for years. Now the shoe is on the other foot, it sounds like you don't like it."

From Frank: "Why are you allowing the regime to use you by agreeing to go to Ft Sill? No cameras, no recording devices, no interviews? You are being scammed?"

I'm a little confused by Jimmy from Piedmont's response: "Get over yourself, Kelly. These are children and not a public display at the OKC Zoo."

Kerry in Broken Arrow writes: "As a taxpayer who is footing the bill, I'm entitled to know the truth of what is going on."

Diane from Choctaw: "The tone of your Two Cents came across to me as manufactured and misplaced outrage along with a poorly concealed attempt to suggest that there is a cover-up of some kind.”

Finally, from Terry in Leedy: "Investigative reporting? No cameras or recording devices. We will take on a tour of our choosing. Sounds a lot like the old USSR to me."

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
