Your sister's house looks like my brother's old house in Richmond. His was designed by Bud Hyland, another student of Wright's.

The original was powered by twin 450 horsepower 4.9L straight-8 engines and had a theoretical top speed of 550 mph, which would make it one of the fastest propeller airplanes ever. The original resides in a museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. They are soon sending the replica to a museum in California, where it will be in display with Bugatti automobiles.

The Bugatti 100P replica crashed yesterday, pilot dead. It wasn't the first time he had trouble with the plane, the brakes caused the plane to pitch forward onto its nose on landing on its first flight.

Bear gored near Attack, Oklahoma... no, wait, that's bear attack near Gore, Oklahoma.

Black bear populations in Oklahoma have been increasing, mostly in the mountains of SE Oklahoma, but also in other areas further north and further west. A young bear was captured in a backyard in Claremore about six or seven years ago. Another was treed in Broken Arrow in 2014. It was captured after being shot with a tranquilizer gun, then moved to wilder environs. Last year one was seen in a Muskogee neighborhood. Oklahoma wildlife officials allowed black bear hunting with archery or black powder rifles in 2010, the first legal hunting for that species since Oklahoma first instituted hunting regulations in 1895. The annual "harvest" of black bears is limited to 70 animals, archery season has maxed out or exceeded their quota every year. And there are still more bears.

Shocking sexism at the Olympic games...

Sexism In Rio: The Media’s Only Talking About The... | ClickHole

Quote:
The Olympics are supposed to be a celebration of the accomplishments of these incredible athletes—both men and women. Instead, it seems everyone covering the games has fallen into the same exasperating and all-too-familiar pattern: the inability to discuss women’s achievements without comparing them to Alfredo the Incredible Circus Boy.

49 year old Oklahoma City woman killed her 33 year old daughter by forcing a crucifix and religious medallion down her throat until blood came out of her mouth because she thought her daughter was possessed by the devil.

I had my arms resting on my desk in my 5th floor apartment in Austin this morning as I read something on the internets, and it started to wobble ever so slightly. My actual thoughts were "Is this an earthquake? Should I be fleeing the building? Nah, I'm in Texas. We don't get earthquakes. Must be my imagination." Shortly after I went out to get coffee and saw the news of the Oklahoma earthquake on Twitter. Madness!

Mother and daughter arrested for incest, and under Oklahoma law the only evidence needed is that they got married.

The Okie kicker: The mother's marriage to her son was annulled by the son on the grounds of incest.

I have spoken to several people here in SW Iowa who say that the felt the Oklahoma earthquake. I didn't feel it. I probably slept through it. I used to sleep through earthquakes in S. California, so it is no big surprise that I missed that one too.

Wellston, OK - Trump supporter killed two female family members and shot up two cops with an AK-47 and is still on the lam. Police are conducting a state-wide manhunt.

Okay, he may not be a Trump supporter, but the likelihood is high because you can't swing a dead cat around here without hitting one.
