They are weird in general:
Poll
What's the craziest legislation the Oklahoma GOP will pass this year at the state Capitol?:
A tax cut for the wealthy after severe cuts in education in recent years.
Personhood bill that gives civil rights to human fertilized eggs. This one threatens access to birth control.
The anti-science bills attacking the teaching of evolution and the scientific method in state schools.
The arming of teachers in Oklahoma schools and "Second Amendment" initiatives to make the state less safe from gun violence.
Making it more difficult to get a divorce here.
All the above.
All the above and other crazy legislation, too.

Hot news:

"Mississippi ratifies 13th amendment abolishing slavery ... 147 years late

Mississippi has officially ratified the 13th amendment to the US constitution, which abolishes slavery and which was officially noted in the constitution on 6 December 1865. All 50 states have now ratified the amendment."

How come nobody noticed it before "Dr Ranjan Batra, a professor in the department of neurobiology and anatomical sciences at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, saw Spielberg's film and wondered about the implementation of the 13th amendment after the Civil War?"

.. "the paperwork for the passage of the bill on 30 January. The bill passed on 7 February" [2013].
