Sour note


Letters to the Editor

Blake Gibb
As feared, the Zoo Amphitheatre does not have a Summer/Fall lineup as of June 12. In past years, under the Zoo Amp’s previous management, I already could have planned what concerts I would attend over the next four to five months at the Zoo. Now the people of OKC have nothing?

Commentary

Robin Meyers
I handed my driver’s license to the Transportation Security Administration agent in the Manchester, N.H., airport, and she said, “Oh, my God! Oklahoma? My condolences to your state.”

Still the 'Oklahoma Standard'


Letters to the Editor

Brad Walker
There has never been a better set of Oklahoma Gazette commentaries than your May 29 issue. This, of course, was due to the fact that we needed the commentary to be that good.

Too red for government aid?


Letters to the Editor

Barbara Johnson
Oklahoma by record is the “reddest” state in the Union. It is the only state in which every county voted Republican in the last two presidential elections. The Republicans have made it clear that they feel the government is an enemy — a “tyrannical” government that further compounds the right to bear arms as a necessity for protection against such government. It has been made clear that their feeling is that they do not need the government in their lives.

In praise of petroleum


Letters to the Editor

Amber Nemecek
“Future generations call us to say no to the Keystone XL pipeline” according to Nathaniel Batchelder’s “No time for pipeline” commentary (May 22, Oklahoma Gazette). If that’s the case, then future generations need to say goodbye to telephones, soft contact lenses, motor oil, antifreeze, deodorant, lipstick, hair color, eyeglasses, soap, perfumes, tires and many other common items that Americans use on a daily basis.

It’s just a little tax cut. It can’t hurt anything, can it?

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.
