Rewind (Oklahoma)

To be 100% clear, we have NO connection to the state of Oklahoma, whatsoever. None of us have even ever been there. But the state fascinates us because it was a clear-cut beneficiary of the fracking revolution and then a clear-cut victim - economically and, perhaps more controversially, environmentally - of the precipitous fall in oil prices that occurred a year+ ago. So, maybe this isn't "news" but Moody's Analytics says that Oklahoma - as well as Louisiana and North Dakota (notably, other oil-reliant states) - is among the least prepared states for a recession. Adding insult to injury, the state announced that it will be cutting outpatient mental health and substance abuse programs because of state budget cuts. Luckily there's no opioid addiction epidemic in the US these days.
