Ten Insights from Traveling Route 66-- Part 2

4. WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH OKLAHOMA?-- They voted against Obama and Republicans rule. Their favorite son is Will Rogers and they refer to 66 as the Will Rogers Highway. (So, what's wrong with voting against Obama?)


5. WIND ENERGY FROM THE TEXAS PANHANDLE-- The panhandle is "the Saudi Arabia" of wind energy.


6. AMARILLO HAS A GOOD GAY SCENE-- There are more gay bars in Amarillo than in Albuquerque, which has a much larger population.


7. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF COWBOY HATS-- "...every cowboy has at least two hats: a dark felt hat to keep them warm in the cool months and a white straw hat to keep cool during the summer." And, you shouldn't wear your straw hat before Easter.

More to Come. --RoadDog
