    I figured Harold Hamm was one as well.

    Glad to see Aubrey got back on the list, he took a big hit and went to like 600-700mil when he got cash calls for stock.

    Our empathy definitely goes out for him and his rough experience in the last year. I'm sure he's sick and tired of ham and cheese by now..

    Harold Hamm was number 136 on the list at 5.5 billion. Strange that the Oklahoman would leave out the 2nd highest Oklahoman.

    Yeh man, he is a Plainsman. He's the founder and CEO of Continental Resources and really honest to goodness self-made success story. And, tough, but a helluva guy too. I thought it a major oversight that the DOK left out Oklahoma's number 2 billionaire as well. Him and George Kaiser are far and away our most wealthiest.

    It better not be across I-40 from Downtown OKC. If that's the case, then no thanks..

    No, but if there was a Downtown OKC Indian Tribe, I would definitely be one of its warriors..



    And they would call me Walker, Downtown Ranger .. not to confuse cowboys with indians.

    Apparently an editing mistake or oversight, they ran this on Saturday

    NewsOK

    Oklahoma business briefs (Oklahoman, 3/13/10)

    Forbes’ list of wealthiest people includes Enid oilman at 136th.

    Enid oilman Harold Hamm was among five Oklahomans ranked among the world’s billionaires in Forbes’ annual listing. Hamm, 64, was listed as the world’s 136th-wealthiest person with an estimated net worth of $5.5 billion. Hamm founded Continental Resources, a publicly traded oil and gas company, and last year took his gas processing firms, Hiland Partners and Hiland Holdings, private by purchasing the outstanding shares.

    I wonder what guys like Bob Funk, Larry Nichols and others are worth. Why hasn't Mr. Nichols ever been on the list.

    Uhm...maybe because he is not a billionaire? Just venturing a guess...
