Sometimes you have to change careers, I did. Anyone who really wants to work can find work in Tulsa. The unemployment rate is around 4.0% in Tulsa.

I think that's marginally better than having a Target on your back.

Yes, just do that job career change thing. Drive for MTTA with your BBA. Use your engineering degree to work at QT. Jobs for all who want them at bargain rates.

A sociology degree is a pre-requisite for bartending isn’t it?

Or there’s the old joke that’s relevant again: “What do you call a petroleum geologist in Tulsa: 'Oh waiter!’"

You can make money in the service industry. A lot of it.

I will just go to the farm and grow some stuff....

I have enough crawdads that I could almost start a Cajun restaurant!  Except the Crawfish frogs keep eating all the stock.....

Hopefully can get the escargot ranch up and running in the next year.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Would you care to expand on your question?

There doesn't appear to be anything in the news that I can source.

Been sold to a global events company.  That's been the worst kept rumor this month.

Of course.  But it still seems like pretty big news.

Now that we've scooped the TW, expect it to appear in tomorrow's edition.

It could also be that the request of the company was to hold the news until the day of close.

Since the Tulsa World has chosen (for whatever lame reason) not to share the news, here's the scoop (all from public records):

PennWell has agreed to be purchased by a Blackstone Capital private equity fund. Blackstone already owns Clarion Events, a global events company. It will be interesting to see how (or if) they combine the companies and what they do with the publishing side of the business.
