Well now we’ll share with you how one reader perfectly and adeptly summarized Oklahoma and Nebraska’s complaints, as seen in the comments on The Denver Post’s Facebook page.

Post reader Cory Whitmer only took two sentences to say what many others were thinking. Wasn’t it Oscar Wilde — or William Shakespeare, rather (thanks, readers) — who said, “Brevity is the soul of wit”?
