Picks and Pans Review: Sucker Day, Wetumka, Okla. (aug. 29).
Good-natured Wetumkans still celebrate the day in 1950 when they were hoodwinked by a con man who came to town, promised them a circus, took the money and ran. (Good idea for a musical.) Festivities include Indian dances, religious singing, a mule rodeo and a parade. One year the Wetumkans found the original con man and tried to bring him back as guest of honor, but that fell through.
