A lot of you were stunned that a student mural in Rhode Island was deemed objectionable by some at the school because it showed a traditional family.

Irma in Norman wrote:

"Good grief, I am so sick of political correctness. I say leave the mural that the child drew.

It is her vision of a perfect family."

David in Blanchard said:

"Since when did the standard family unit (a married man and woman) become so taboo in this country?"

And Courtney from Tuttle says:

"If someone were to draw two mommies or two daddies everyone with traditional values would be expected to accept it or it would be considered a huge controversy."

I also blasted those few Arkansas fans trying to mount a campaign to save their disgraced football coach.

That prompted Doug to write:

"If it was Stoops in those shoes, would you still throw the fans under the bus for wanting to keep their winning coach?"

But Wayne writes:

"I'm a die-hard Razorback fan living in Oklahoma City. I agree with your 2 cents whole-heartedly. Thanks for standing up for moral values over wins and losses."

Finally John from Bethany with the parting shot:

"I couldn't help but chuckle as I saw you sitting on your inflated ego lecturing Arkansas. No one from Oklahoma with the fanatical fan base it has is in a position to lecture any other school."

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