No shoes, no shirt


Colorado web designer Lorie Smith had her day at the Supreme Court Monday when oral arguments were held on whether or not she can turndown designing a wedding web site for same-sex couples.

She claims it is her first amendment right of free speech for artistic expression and religious liberty to elect not to perform the service.

Smith, who runs a web design company called 303 Creative, has said she should not be required to create wedding websites for same-sex couples based on her Christian beliefs about marriage.

Under public accommodation laws businesses open to all cannot deny service based on race, gender or sexual orientation.

Liberal justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor were leaning with the LGBTQ+ community in the matter.

Conservative justice Clarence Thomas said, “This is not a hotel. This is not a restaurant a riverboat or a train.

“I’m interested in the intersection of public accommodation laws and speech.”

What ever happened to no shoes, no shirt, no service?


Only in Oklahoma can it be summertime one day and winter the next.

Last Monday couldn’t have been any nicer.

Highs were anywhere from the 70s to around 80 with little or not much wind.

The next day was damp and cold.

Rain the next.

Like Will Rogers said, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute.”
