So, basically, OKPOP is an empty shell ("skin and bones") after $30 million ("Phase 1"), and they need another $35 million for Phase 2 -- "displays, exhibitions and programming" -- the stuff people would actually be able to come and see.
The best museum of the history of space travel in the world is @the_cosmosphere in Hutchinson, Kansas, and it started with a planetarium projector in a junior college poultry building. As artifacts were acquired, the facilities were expanded and improved.
#Tulsa leaders don't understand the idea of starting small and growing, probably because most of them inherited their wealth and have never built a business or an organization. They throw piles of tax and foundation money at a big plan and have nothing to show for it.

Maritime feeling in the #Tulsa air today. A brisk, cool breeze, moist air but not muggy, is something I associate with the seashore, not landlocked Oklahoma.
Taking a walk in McClure Park and thinking that the paths, the channelization of Mill Creek, the stormwater basins that serve as soccer, softball, and tennis courts, must be over 30 years old now. They were built when I worked nearby and would bring lunch to the park. ImageImageImageImage
In the '70s we would sometimes come to McClure Park to swim in their Olympic-length pool. It was the nearest public pool to far east #Tulsa. Sometimes we'd go a bit farther to the city pool on the west side of Claremore. We swam at the Blue Whale when it was open. Image

I believe I have found the Twitter account belonging to the #Tulsa Haitian mass shooter, Michael Louis.

At 4:41 pm local time on June 1, the account tweeted: "Today is a beautiful day." The shooting happened around 4:52 pm.
The Twitter account posted a link to a YouTube page belonging to "Mike Louis," which doesn't have original content but does have a playlist. The last videos added yesterday were about how to use the AR-15. The Tulsa mass shooter used an AR-15 style
Exclusive: Michael Louis, aka Michelet Louis-Baptiste, the Haitian mass shooter who killed four at a hospital in #Tulsa, Okla., was class of 1996 at East Orange High School in East Orange, N.J.

Because my other thread is getting suppressed, let’s try a new one for #Tulsa

Press conference just now. Police looking to identify suspect (by name) - they are a black male approx. 35-40 years old who entered with a rifle and a handgun. Self-inflicted wound.
Hospital CEO, visibly shaken, thanks responders for their incredible response to the senseless act.

“I don’t think I’ve truly understood just how important our first responders can be - and are”
#Tulsa Mayor shuts down reporter in an elegant manner who tries to connect other recent mass casualty shootings to this one while next-of-kin notifications are still underway.

Principal Chief David Hill:
The City of Tulsa’s insertion of itself into the Governor’s unrelenting and untethered-to-facts push to provoke the US Supreme Court to overturn its McGirt ruling seems to be little more than political theater.
🧵 excerpts #McGirt #Tulsa
City of Tulsa attorneys last week seized the opportunity to send the U.S. Supreme Court a rehashed, recycled version of their year-ago rejected argument against key pillars of tribal sovereignty.
We are disappointed, but not surprised.
The fiction in the City of Tulsa’s legal filing that the McGirt ruling is bad for Indians is insulting, at best. Patently false. And, racist, at worst. Those who adhere to that storyline are on the wrong path.

On Friday June 4, 2021 I attended a meeting with Secretary of State Blinken. The purpose of the meeting was to talk all things #Palestine

I attended as an individual. I am not affiliated with any PAC or organization. I obviously do not speak for or represent the #Palestinian people. There’s like 7 million of us at least, and like 2 million of #Palestinians stuffed in #Gaza alone.
To the #Palestinian Americans who boycotted this meeting after the #Biden Administration handed Israel $735 million dollars in weaponry following the merciless attacks on Palestinians locked in Gaza.

This is my love letter to #Tulsa;

Dear Tulsa,

Yet again you have found a way to stir the ancestors in me. Connecting me emotionally & spiritually to the trauma, resilience & determination of family members whom I will never get to meet. To walk the hollowed ground of...
..#Greenwood and see confirmation of our greatness despite the horrors of segregation, murder & hate leaves me forever changed. Learning of the resolve of ancestors like Loula Williams, Homer Johnson & Mabel Little only emboldens me. I leave here standing even taller...
...on their shoulders with my commitment strengthened to help current & future generations ensure that the next "Black Wall Street" doesn't have to exist as a geography but instead as a philosophy of abundance that can mean that any Black person can be the next "O.W. Gurley"...

One aspect of the #TulsaMassacre that seems to get overlooked in the orgy of violence is that there were aircraft literally firebombing the black neighborhoods. And a bit of digging turned up names- the pilots were Air Service veterans flying surplus Curtiss JN-4 "Jennies". 1/
The Feb 1, 1920 edition of the Tulsa Tribune had a brief blurb about a "local oilman" who purchased 447 aircraft (!!!) at a cost of $2,500,000... that's 33.3 MILLION dollars in today's money. What was he going to do with them? Well, fast forward to May 1. 2/
It's May Day, and the nation appeared to be in the grip of the first "Red Panic", with national strikes proposed by the I.W.W. Recall, the Communist Revolution in Russia had completely upset the balance of power in 1917/18, and postwar Germany was in immense turmoil 2/

Here’s on the ground local home builder commentary from across the country per our April survey. A lot of builders are pressing the pause button &/or slowing things down until construction costs moderate & they can catch up with sales. Worries about buyer price ceilings too...
#Chicago home builder commentary: “We sold all of the homes we had in early 2021 & haven’t started anything new, & may not due to the cost of construction. Can’t hold pricing for clients longer than 45 days with rising material pricing.”

BREAKING: President Trump says White House Task Force member, Dr. Deborah Birx, is coming to visit Oklahoma next week where she will give an “agressive, tailored” strategy for reducing the spike in #coronavirus cases.
Birx will also visit Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, & Arkansas next week.
Oklahoma’s @GovStitt received a letter from U.S. Rep. James Clyburn saying Oklahoma ignored White House guidelines to stop #COVID19 spread.
Last week Governor Stitt called the letter “political” (MORE)
As far as making changes-Stitt said we would have to see 2500 new cases a day for 14 continuous days before we would have 1200 patients in the hospitals. ONLY if that happens would they look at making adjustments reducing capacity in restaurants and possibly closing bars. (MORE)

In the first #coronavirus task force briefing in nearly 2 months, @VP Pence says there's a "rise of new cases that today surmounted 40,000 new cases in a single day."

Pence plans to visit Texas, Arizona and Florida in the coming days as those states see spikes in #COVID19
.@VP Pence: "As the president has made clear, we want to open our economy up. We want to move America forward, even while we take and continue to take the steps necessary to protect lives and the health of the American people"…
.@VP: "it's almost inarguable" more testing means more cases. Adds, "volume of new cases" is a reflection expanding testing

The claim that case surges can be fully explained by an increase in testing availability has been refuted by public health experts, including Dr. Fauci

I was just harassed and called a “psycho cunt” for telling a young man at my neighborhood grocery store #HEB in #Texas to wear a mask as required by local ordinance and signage in the store. #COVID19 cases are spiking in #Houston #Texas
2/ It’s my day off. I had to pick up prescriptions. I’ve been traveling, so I wore an N95 mask and goggles to protect myself and others. I told the man I have been on #COVID19 units and that the risk is real. I also said we’re all #Texans
3/ I’m a registered Independent and a Christian. I just traveled to cover an @realDonaldTrump rally in #Tulsa. Regardless of what you think of me, #MSM or #FakeNews, this guy broke the law.

Manifestante trumpiano senza mascherina a #Tulsa:

«Avevamo un amico: è morto di #COVID19 e suo figlio è quasi morto. Quindi sappiamo che è reale. Ma al contempo non si sa quali siano i fatti... l'impressione è che una parte giochi in un modo e l'altra parte in un altro modo...»
🔴#CoronaVirus #USA🇺🇸

La rivoluzionaria strategia di #Trump: dice che quando si fanno molti tamponi, si trovano molti casi di contagio da #COVID19. Per cui ha chiesto di fare meno tamponi 💡🤯🤷‍♂️


A 135 giorni dalle presidenziali di novembre sale la preoccupazione nel #TeamTrump dopo il flop del raduno di ieri: il Presidente aveva annunciato la presenza di 1 milione di simpatizzanti ma non è nemmeno riuscito a riempire i 19mila posti del Bok Centre di #Tulsa. Image

⚡️Trump inicia el mitin en #Tulsa, Oklahoma.

La arena no está llena, a 2/3 de su capacidad cuando más, en una ciudad y estado con repunte de #COVID19, con las personas sin guardar distancia y la gran mayoría sin cubrebocas. Ni el presidente ni el VP lo han usado tampoco... Image
Afuera había un templete y se esperaba que Trump dirigiera unas palabras al exceso de gente que no pudiera entrar.

Quitaron el templete y no dirigió palabras porque no hubo exceso de gente que se quedara sin poder entrar.
6 miembros del equipo de campaña de Trump dieron positivo a #COVID19 horas antes del evento.
