Yes, we do. You can find a list of local museums, as well as parks, swimming pools, and camps in our Tulsa Organizations and Services (or TOS) database. This database is a wealth of information on local groups, nonprofits, government agencies, professional associations, clubs, and more, and covers the cities within Tulsa County as well as a few other nearby areas. In most entries, TOS includes info such as address and phone numbers, links to outside websites, and brief descriptions of each group or organization and what they have to offer.

When I say Oedipus Rex, chances are you have a pretty visceral reaction. My first thought is of someone gouging out his own eyeballs. I don’t know why that particular image has remained with me ever since first reading parts of the play in middle school, but it has. (It might be my affinity for the dramatic.) The story of Oedipus is deeply imbedded in our collective unconscious—whether from reading the play or studying Freud’s stages of psychosexual development. It is a story that triggers our deepest anxieties about identity and destiny.
