Going through the mailbag tonight, and some of your comments.

Still writing in about the $40 million needed to finish the American Indian Cultural Center downtown on the river.

Tim from McLoud says:

"I know as soon as they get it opened they will claim it as Indian sovereign land and put a casino on the Oklahoma River."

Lisa writes:

"Seriously they cut education 4.7% in the budget and they want use to pay for a cultural center.

I thought the education of our children was suppose to be important."

But Otoemom argues:

"Why should the tribes pay for it?

We didn't asked for it.

It is putting the Native American on display.

Right now it is cool to be Native."

MT from Shawnee wanted to brag on our basketball team:

"I am so proud to be a Thunder fan... because of the way our players handle themselves."

While Steve in Blanchard took a shot at the fans in Seattle:

"Let's design a T-shirt for Seattle, a guy with his hand, palm out across his for head with a 'woe is me' slogan over top, and a supersonics jersey."

Finally James with these thoughts about Gary England after hearing about the deaths in the Joplin tornado:

"I believe that because of him and his dedication to his profession, we have had tornadoes that far exceeded the recent ones we've seen this year, yet the loss of life has been far less."

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