Not All the Loonies Are From Texas

Sometimes it seems that Texas has more than its share of crackpots. A Governor who does not accept evolution, a state board of education who removed Thomas Jefferson from a list of important Enlightenment thinkers but then inserted Thomas Aquarius, book burnings, etc. So I'm glad this news comes from Oklahoma, there is a legislative referendum that forbids courts from considering or using Sharia Law. Has this been a problem in OK? Have people gone to court to resolve differences and then been stoned or caned? Or is everything so fine in OK that they have time and resources to spend on imaginary problems rather than ones in the real world?
