    Well they could always play the Patel Motel game. "We are not gouging! Our regular rate is $200 per night, but we often discount to $48."

    Prosecute them for what?


    ETA: nevermind. I see that OK has one of those silly price-gouging ordinances. Dumbest. Idea. Ever.

    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Neal Boortz once explained the reason that sometimes price gouging isn't as bad as it sounds. It can keep one person from buying everything for themselves. There seems to be a bigger problem with scammers going door to door in towns surrounding Moore asking for donations and running off with the money. My sister in law told me she and my brother were approached by such a scammer. She's smart enough to tell these people to pound sand.

    By the looks of the radar there were three tornadoes down at once, two in less populated N.E. OK and one in dense populated broken arrow, no word of damage yet.

    It sounds like the broken Arrow storm ripped up a handful of houses but compared to what we have had it sounds pretty light. The ones in the rural areas probably won't have any reports until morning. All is quiet now.

    That's good that it's quiet. SLW's sons have some storms moving in right now but they don't
