Getting past coal


Letters to the Editor

Jody Harlan
In a recent letter to the editor in favor of burning toxic coal to generate electricity, Doug Rixmann (”Bashing coal,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette) repeatedly demonstrated his lack of understanding of the consequences of burning coal to produce electricity, as well as the costs and risks associated with retrofitting older plants rather than retiring them and replacing them with clean energy.

You kidding me?


Letters to the Editor

Larry Stem
When I started reading the letter to the editor titled “Hooray for G.W.” (May 8, Oklahoma Gazette) by David Oliver, I thought it some tart satire.

College and life


Letters to the Editor

Scott Campbell
Regarding Vince Orza’s commentary about kids in college today (”College shouldn’t be never-ending,” May 15, Oklahoma Gazette), he doesn’t understand one big point: High schools don’t teach kids about career choices.

MAPS for trauma


Commentary

Andrew Rice
In April 2010, I attended an Oklahoma City Thunder playoff game against the Los Angeles Lakers and stood the entire game, along with 18,000 others. Our young team made a furious comeback to win. I did not lose my voice that night from cheering; I lost it from screaming.

To be an Oklahoman


Commentary

Nicole Hill
Do you know what it takes to be an Oklahoman? You probably don’t, because to be an Oklahoman is to be balls-to-the-wall crazy.

No more stalling the Keystone XL


Commentary

U.S. Rep. James Lankford
Cash Western Store has been a fixture in the thriving community of Seminole since 1939. Now owned by Mr. Bob Berry, it is a small shop, specializing in work boots, Western attire and things people who work on, say, an oil pipeline might be interested in.

No time for pipeline


Commentary

Nathaniel Batchelder
Oklahoma City residents Nancy Zorn and Stefan Warner are among several members of the Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance arrested for nonviolently protesting construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Opposition to the pipeline and development of the Canadian tar sands is based on a long-range view of tar sands development and its threat to sustainability on earth.

Pondering religious freedom


Letters to the Editor

K.A. Straughn
Concerning Hobby Lobby’s refusal to pay for emergency birth control under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Dennis Weigand (Letters to the Editor, “Questioning Hobby Lobby, May 8, Oklahoma Gazette) writes, “Is employment at Hobby Lobby conditional on agreement with the religious views of the owners? If it is not, then [Hobby Lobby’s] claim that their religious freedom would be violated by the ACA is nothing but a hollow pretense to religious superiority, taking the position that Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom is more important than the religious freedom of their employees.”

Ogling open government


Commentary

Mike Brake
The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention conducted their deliberations in secret. These were thoughtful men who realized that the decisions they faced — how to design and construct a form of government to maximize the freedoms only recently won in the American Revolutionary War — required a great deal of give-and-take.

The reality behind ‘teen pregnancy’


Letters to the Editor

Mike Males
That even today, “teen pregnancy” continues to be misrepresented as just the result of teenage ignorance and carelessness (Life, Rachel Curtis, “Sensible sex ed,” April 24, Oklahoma Gazette) is more proof of the need to abandon this sexist misnomer. The large majority of male partners are adult men.
