Oklahoma’s Favorite Son

It was mentioned earlier this morning on my show on KIX 105.7 that it was on this date in 1935 that Will Rogers was killed in an airplane crash near Point Barrow, Alaska Territory (now Alaska).  It struck me to investigate the life of Will Rogers as he was the same age as I am now, 55, when he was killed.

William Penn Adair “Will” Rogers (November 4, 1879 – August 15, 1935) was an American cowboyvaudeville performer, humorist, social commentator and motion picture actor. He was one of the world’s best-known celebrities in the 1920s and 1930s.

Some of the more familiar sayings we still use today from Will Rogers include ”I have never yet met a man that I dident [sic] like,” “Lettin’ the cat out of the bag is a lot easier than puttin’ it back in,” and “If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”

A very entertaining man, Will Rogers, one whom never was a loss for words, is definitely is someone to check back into your history (Or Wikipedia!) to learn more.
