A taxing question

Let’s see if I have this straight. Passage of the so-called River Tax next Tuesday will provide Tulsa County with which of the following benefits?

  1. All the oil companies who fled to Houston will come home
  2. New, catchier name for the Inner Dispersal Loop
  3. The opportunity to sneer at Oklahoma City’s “river”
  4. As if by magic, a riverfront will appear in Broken Arrow
  5. None of the above

Right now, I’m thinking C.

    Awesome power these city, county officials have, to spin a magical tale, if only they can raise your taxes.

    Please visit this great temporary web site that will be coming down after October 9th.

    River tax election eve roundup

    If I don’t collapse at the keyboard, I’ve got maybe two River-related posts left. First, this roundup of news stories and comments and then, for the late deciders, a summary of the issue and links to key pieces that I’ve written. The vote yes side has …
