UPDATE: Due to the weather (see this post), our pub date has been pushed back until after the 7th.

Reader, you are in for a delight of the eyes and the mind. This Land Issue Number 6 (a.k.a. Vol 2, #2) not only delivers a whopping amount of awesomeness, but it also introduces you to people, places and ideas that make you even more excited about life in Oklahoma.

A tantalizing preview from our Table of Contents:

You have heard rumors about JJ’s Gourmet Burger. But writer Steve Gerkin has the story, and it involves hippies romping in the buff, the invention of Tulsa Tops (a special sort of paper), and a burger despot.

Yes, Martin Luther King Jr. came to Tulsa. And Justice Marshall changed the tide here too. You’ll get the inside scoop from Joshua Kline and Hannibal B. Johnson.

Any of you remember Thomas Conner? He remembers you in his letter from Chicago.

Do not piss off rollerderbyist Clara Nipper. She will Go Fast, Turn Left, and leave you hurting for more.

If there’s anyone who can bite you using only a story, it’s Gordon Grice. This time he writes about bats.

Also, our ads are particularly handsome this issue, and several are funny.

There’s plenty of other great stuff to read and gaze at, so please support what we’re doing and subscribe soon. What, you subscribed already? Great, because that means if you live nearby, we’re giving you a couple free passes to Philbrook’s newest exhibit, a $15 value. It’s just one of the many ways we’ll be expressing our thanks to you.
