I watched Urban Renewal destroy Oklahoma City alive, I lived down on Main Street, Harvy Hotel, with my litle wife, 19 years she 18, we watched the entire city destroy by huge wrecking machines, The place looked like a war zone fot years, money ran out 1970's and it stalled. All in Vain, All The jobs are gone, Robbersons Steel, Western Electric Huge Plant on Reno 1 square miles mgf. plant I worked at after my Son was born 1971.
