Excitement at Tulsa City Hall

Michael Bates of the Batesline has an interesting story this week about a hostile reception he received at the Tulsa City Council office. Michael seems to have become a thorn in the side of Tulsa's administration because he asks lots of questions and demands transparency in government. His investigative reporting is admirable for a private citizen with a fulltime job. His intelligence is apparent in both his writing and in person. While I did not agree with Michael in his opposition to Tulsa's Vision 2025 I thought he put up a good fight. I don't agree with him on many political issues but I'm glad he's there to keep the media and politicians from lapsing into easy cronyism.
