Quick question – will summer EVER get here? I know it’s only spring, but personally I could do with some warm if not hot weather.
Enough ranting, here are some quick headlines:
American Airlines canceled more than 900 flights Thursday to fix faulty wiring in hundreds of jets, marking the third straight day of mass groundings as company executives offered profuse apologies and travel vouchers to calm angry customers.
Drama in Norman yesterday as Malcolm Kelly prepared to impress NFL scouts. The Oklahoman’s Jake Trotter reports Kelly was upset after running a pedestrian 4.68 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He placed blame on the OU strength staff and accused them of failing to notify him they were changing surfaces.
NewsOK.tv’s Damon Fontenot filed two video reports from Pro Day in Norman yesterday:
- Running for your Life: With everything on the line, former Sooners receiver Malcolm Kelly posts sub-par numbers in Wednesday’s workout for NFL scouts.
- Malcontempt Malcolm: Former OU receiver Malcolm Kelly is disgusted with the conditions provided for his Pro Day workout.
Yesterday also saw the latest round of a verbal battle between state Rep. Sally Kern and members of the gay community. PFLAG, a gay rights group released a 40-minute audio recording of a meeting between members of the group and Kern in hopes of shedding light on the content and context of that meeting. The group originally described the meeting as cordial. Kern later said she would not meet with them again.
In weather, more warnings and watches around the state today. Here’s what to expect: Partly cloudy. Highs about 70. Southwesterly winds 20 to 30 mph, gusting to 45 mph in the afternoon. Twenty percent chance of thunderstorms.
