An Oklahoma Treasure!

Today we celebrate the birthday of one of America’s great humorist, Will Rogers. Rogers was born on November 4, 1879, at Oologah, Oklahoma.

Some quick facts: he traveled around the world three times, made 71 movies (50 silent films and 21 with sound), wrote more than 4,000 nationally-syndicated newspaper columns, and became a world-famous figure.

“So let’s be honest with ourselves and not take ourselves too serious, and never condemn the other fellow for doing what we are doing every day, only in a different way.”    — Will Rogers
