What an amazing Oklahoman. RIP and thanks for everything!
wow, I knew he was ol but hoped he'd make 100.
He was great. RIP
He had a good run.
Bless him. And his family, friends and relatives.
If you grew up in Bartlesville he was a villian, he was good to OSU though and other organizations.
I loved the fact that he pumped money into OSU,,,
I hated the fact that he was an elitist who had disdain for poor people.
I attended an event at OSU where he was speaking,,,
Actually, I was a grad student assisting the university video crew.
I listened to him talk to several people about how poor people shouldn't be allowed to own land,,,
He had been frustrated in some attempt to buy some property (large land area),,,
Because the people just didn't want to sell their family land.
His reasoning was that if they didn't have the resources to develop the property,,,
They shouldn't be able to own it in the first place.
I don't know about his rep as a corporate raider,,,
His attitude was I want the university to have the property,,,
And he had the money and lawyers to assist OSU in attaining it.
I do know he promoted absolutely predatory policies on Stillwater locals,,,
Not he himself but through his money supporting the university.
This attitude became very open during the "eminent domain" takeover of residential property north of the stadium,,,
He (his money) was instrumental in forcing some large-ish number of people to sell their property.
I'm not especially happy to hear of his recent passing,,,
I'm not going to go out dancing in the streets,,,
But I won't mourn or miss him either.
I guess all that money doesn’t buy one you one more second! When everything is said we are all going to end up a worm feast. RIP old boy.
Yeah, he gave a lot of money, but you don't see any press about his attitudes pissing on the little guy, eh?
The problem with the ultra wealthy is that they lose touch with the common man. If he really wanted his money to do something great, he should have paid tuitions for kids that who couldn’t pay it for themselves.
