Photos: Leaving Oklahoma

Greetings from Wichita, Kansas! We've covered a lot of ground over the past few days and have done a wide variety of interviews. From Bartlesville, we drove through the Osage Reservation to the OK panhandle; we interviewed people in a firehouse, outside of movie theaters, at gas stations and Wal-Mart parking lots. We crossed the Oklahoma/Kansas border yesterday and spent today in Liberal, Kansas, home of Dorothy and the Land of Oz! We interviewed people in a laundry mat, at a garage sale and in the Wal-Mart parking lot (there's at least one Wal-Mart in almost every small town we've visited). Because we're trying to do as many on the street interviews as possible and doing a lot of driving, we don't have much time to transcribe. For now, here are a few photos. Enjoy!

Also, I'll be on Air America Radio Saturday night at 8:30 pm EST to discuss opinions about the war. Tune in if you can!

We spent a few hours in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, population 35,000. I had a great conversation with about five local firemen there.
