1. I moved here in 2001, not 2003. The article makes it sound like I moved to a neighborhood and pretty much started blogging about it immediately...NOT TRUE.
And yes, I am from Oklahoma. This means that every reporter from now until dooms day will introduce me by calling me an Oklahoma native. True, but I haven't lived there in 13 years guys. Not that there's anything wrong with Oklahoma. I just think this is an odd tick that reporters seem to have. It's kind of like the way the Post is constantly using the very "snarl" constantly to talk about traffic.
2. That Craiglist thing? Happened back in 2004, so, not really so "recent" actually. This actually makes more sense if you realize it's a story from 5 years ago.
