Letters to the Editor


E. R. Kelly October 30th, 2013

When in your first remarks about Rush (Life, Film, Sept. 25, Gazette) you refer to "Formula One jerks,” you expose your ignorance of the top racing series in the world.

Clearly, you have no idea that the movie is a dramatization of one of the most spectacular years of racing for a world championship in Formula One.

Many of today's Formula One drivers earn enough money that they could buy Oklahoma Gazette from Bill Bleakley so they could fire you and hire a competent reviewer who does a minimum of research about the facts of Formula 1's history.

Consider, for example, the story of Toyota's effort to win at Formula One. After spending more than two billion dollars, they gave up.

Consider, for example, that Tiger Wood's annual earnings at the peak of his career were matched or exceeded by Michael Schumacher, the winningest driver in Formula One's history. Mentioning the “Fast and Furious franchise” as a comparison to Formula One racing is like comparing Louis Fowler to Roger Ebert. No contest.
