  1. Since returning to Oklahoma and “finding” the Oklahoma Observer” I have absolutely fallen for Frosty’s Column and for the Journal he and Helen founded….Thanks to Arnold Hamilton for continuing this important and progressive gem and thanks again for getting to still read Frosty’s input!!! The only lights in a dismal home state for this retiree……….Sad to say but true!
