governors, william henry murray is probably my favorite. he has more stories to be told about him than any other governor in the group. he was the president of the constitutional convention. he was the first speaker of the house of representatives. had to wait a while before he got to be governor, but in the four years he was governor, he called out the national guard more than 40 times. more than all the rest of them put together. over all kinds of things. there was a free bridge built to texas. the folks that had the toll bridge his a court injunction to keep it closed. he took the national guard down and they opened the bridge and closed the toll bridge. during his administration, the price of oil dropped to 18 cents and he said we are not pumping oil until it goes back to a dollar. the problem we had with people scalping football tickets at the university of oklahoma. on football weekends, he was making sure nobody made money on the football tickets. 20 years after he was governor, his governor, hisson johnson was governor, and they're the only father and son governors so far.
