For my Okie readers

Y'all go vote on which design gets to go on the Oklahoma state quarter: The Pioneer Woman, a gushing oil derrick, a scissortail flycatcher (state bird), or a calumet (a long peace-pipe thingy used by the Plains tribes).

I'm a little bummed that a covered wagon won't be featured on the quarter, but I suppose the Oklahoma State people might fuss that the OU Sooner mascot was featured. Other than that, I suppose Sequoia (inventor of the Cherokee alphabet) might've been a good choice, or even the "End of the Trail" statue (although lots of First Nations folks don't care for that one).
