    But I have proof of the correct way to say Oklahoma. The word naturally splits into two with a gap in the middle. I even have proof:

    And pray tell why would anyone want to quote the A-hole from Chicago(your neighbor to the west) in their signature line?

    I just discovered my photo didn't post. Take another look and you'll understand the OP.

    The sig line is there as a constant reminder of what this administration is up to.
