A blogger in San Antonio has a suggestion for those in his city who may look down their noses at Oklahoma City: Stop it. Robert Rivard, a former longtime newspaper editor in San Antone, wrote this week that his hometown would be wise to “use the occasion of this exciting series against the Thunder to learn more about the 20-year metamorphosis of Oklahoma City as we labor toward our own transformation in San Antonio.” Rivard recounted our city’s growth as a result of MAPS and its many successes since the Murrah Building bombing in 1995. “San Antonio has more to work with: We are bigger, more economically and culturally diverse, and have a richer history than the Sooners,” he wrote. “But Oklahoma City has been working longer and they’ve done so with greater unity. Just about everyone in Oklahoma City seems to understand that a more vibrant downtown means a more vibrant city for all. We are not there yet.” The full, very flattering, article can be read at therivardreport.com.
