1.2 Is Bubbaworld A Put Down of Oklahoma?
No. Not at all.
Bubbaworld is merely a reflection of the reality of life in Oklahoma. Both the good and the bad are revealed. The fact that Oklahoma has a knack for shooting its own toes off is not the fault of Bubbaworld. We only report the incidents and comment upon them. While one may conclude that Bubbaworld focuses on the bad and over looks the good, this is not the case. It's not our fault that so much of the news of Oklahoma is 'bad'. We at Bubbaworld love to report the good news and as soon as we can find such news it will be reported.
1.3 I Don't Like What You Say About Oklahoma.
Believe me, we don't like saying it either.
Although the truth sometimes hurts, it is the best medicine for the ills of our state. If ever we as a state are to attain membership among the 'Civilized States' we are going to have to face a lot of harsh facts and address our problems rather than ignoring them, as has been the case for far, far too long.
1.4 What primary sources are used by Bubbaworld?
For the most part Bubbaworld relies on various news media outlets located in Oklahoma to bring us word of the latest disaster, fiasco or scandal ongoing in our fine state. Oklahoma has two major daily newspapers, the Daily Oklahoman and the Tulsa World and several local/regional newspapers. At Bubbaworld we monitor these news outlets for items we feel would be of interest to our readers and pass along information adding our comments when we feel they are needed. When possible, we link to an original resource rather than providing a copy of the resource on the Bubbaworld server. In instances where 'public domain' information is involved we usually maintain a copy of the data on our server.
1.5 Is Bubbaworld a 'for profit' operation?
No. Bubbaworld has nothing for sell, does not accept
donations and is provided as a public service by its owners.
We have no plans or desire to sell T-shirts, coffee mugs or any of the other novelties offered by some services.
Yes and no.
