@davidfholt


Ranking at #20 in the new Census estimate of American cities, Oklahoma City has 687,725 residents as of July 1, 2021.   This is a jump from our 22nd-ranking in the 2020 Census, thanks to leapfrogging Nashville and Washington, DC.

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.
