Actually, the "Oklahoma rose" is the state flower...looked it up and apparently mistletoe is the state "floral emblem".

There were Native Americans in Oklahoma before the trail of tears. The trail of tears brought the so-called "five civilized tribes" to Oklahoma.

There are quite a few still in the great plains area, but there four herds with 900 bison total in Alaska. They got transplanted there and have flourished since.

1 in 100 people in prison is so messed up. I'm trying to imagine the town I live in having a prison with 1000 inmates. Insane. America's entire judicial/legal system needs to be overhauled.

The real question is why do we have so many violent criminals? It's largely a myth that there are low-level offenders serving long prison sentences. There are a few, but they constitute a small minority of the prison population. Most people in prison have committed very serious crimes or have a rap sheet a mile long.

Recently, in Washington State, a man was arrested for his 17th DUI. How in the world was this person not in prison long before?

Yep, that's the one. And, despite the URL, he is being charged with his 17th DUI, not 13th.

Quizmaster- That's isn't true. The solution is to not put more people in prison. Instead, lets focus on why these behaviors are happening.

Just my two cents, but prison isn't the answer. America has a jail problem because they don't want to allocate funds towards mental health - which is how you treat the problem. They think prison time will do anything. If a guy got 17 DUI's, he's got a problem and needs professional help; not being put in a jail cell not being taught anything. Putting someone in jail just turns them into a criminal; not re-programming them to become a normal productive person.
