flood
(Mike Allen)

(Editor’s note: Cartoonist Mike Allen was a little busy being awesome this weekend, so your friendly editor in chief, Tres Savage, stepped in to breakdown this week’s #Sundaze comic.)

Norman has seen its share of news recently. Aside from other troubling headlines here on NonDoc, city residents punted the football last week on a stormwater issue that city leaders seriously want to address. Voters, however, are less convinced, having defeated a similar proposal in 2016.

The reason? Hard to say without much research, but Oklahomans are not always thrilled with new tax obligations and utility fees, especially when the problem at hand has been endured for decades.

Everyone knows that Norman floods, and the tap water can taste a little … suspicious? But if you’re new to town, just don’t go (or build?) where it floods when it floods, and maybe find out why everyone’s talking about iced tea. That’s probably how a fair number of longtime Norman voters view political messages about flooding. After all, there’s a prominent street named after the phenomenon, and the city already fixed the intersection of McGee Avenue and Boyd Street years ago.

With the OU spring football game next weekend, who has time to worry about a little water?
