Don't tax ideas


Letters to the Editor

Mike Knopp
As Oklahomans, we face an important decision with State Question 766: Are we going to tax people’s ingenuity and ideas?

A chilling effect


Letters to the Editor

Jalal Farzaneh
Thirty-one years ago my family started Home Creations to build quality homes at a great value. We believe in the American dream of homeownership and strong communities, things that help improve our state in innumerable ways.

Recognizing grief


Letters to the Editor

Joanette Clipson
October is Depression Awareness Month — a time to recognize a condition that affects nearly 10 percent of the population, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each year, an estimated eight to 10 million people experience the loss of a loved one. In addition to death, people experience the loss of a job, a child leaving home, or other major life changes such as a divorce.

Mitt’s no everyday folk


Letters to the Editor

Jim Ammerman
Mitt Romney recently divulged in his tax release that there were deductions he had elected not to take. On face value, one could assume Mitt was just paying his fair share. I do not make that assumption.

Old gray Mitt


Letters to the Editor

Merle D. Wright
You may never read about this anywhere else, but Mitt Romney’s hair is a toupee. No, I’m just kidding. I would wager, though, that Mitt has his personal barber traveling with him — and not just any barber. This one knows color. Check those gray sideburns next time you see Mitt on TV, and freeze the picture if you can. Notice how all of Mitt’s hair is a charcoal color except for the sideburns and temples. The sideburns are totally gray, and the temples have a gray that is perfectly swept on for, I’d guess, about three inches.

Romney is the choice for Oklahoma


Commentary

Todd Lamb
Americans have a fundamental choice about our future. Do we continue along the path of increasing government intervention into our businesses and personal liberties, or do we reverse the course? Following are a few examples of places where Mitt Romney will take our nation in a different direction than the current administration. Through this broad range of issues, it is clear that Romney should be the choice for Oklahoma.

Voting for peace


Commentary

Nathaniel Batchelder
Thinking about the Nov. 6 elections, it is clear to me that we the people must stand in the gap to reverse America’s drift toward becoming a nation and government of, for and by the few doing very well, while the many struggle merely to get by. The stakes are daunting.

Incomplete 'grade'


Letters to the Editor

David Goin
I was disappointed in the content of an article appearing in the Oct. 17 Oklahoma Gazette (News, “Degrading the grade”). I am particularly concerned about a quotation attributed to me (“it’s just about too much to ask”) followed by words that are a misrepresentation of my position and expectations for the academic growth of students.

Kool-Aid’s global warming flavor


Letters to the Editor

Mickey McVay
Robin Meyers (Commentary, “An embarrassment of a senator,” Oct. 3, Oklahoma Gazette) can be foolish enough to drink the man-made global warming Kool-Aid if he wants, but he would be well advised to take some courses

Why not move already?


Letters to the Editor

Thomas L. Furlong
After reading Robin Meyers’ commentary, “An embarrassment of a senator” (Oct. 3, Oklahoma Gazette), I wonder why he chooses to live in Oklahoma.

The federal Titanic is sinking


Commentary

State Rep. T.W. Shannon
Ninety percent of an iceberg is typically underwater. This fact makes icebergs extremely dangerous, because it takes a keen eye to determine if the ice floating on the surface is a small block that can be pushed aside or several million tons of ice that will sink your ship.

Oklahoma’s animal house


Commentary

Louisa McCune-Elmore
In July, I asked Roy Lee Lindsey, executive director of the Oklahoma Pork Council, for a favor — to pick up philosopher Bernard Rollin at Will Rogers World Airport in five o’clock traffic and bring him to the Kirkpatrick Foundation for a cocktail reception.

Rational on climate change


Letters to the Editor

Mike Brake
Robin Meyers uses the terms “idiot” and “criminal” to describe Sen. Jim Inhofe’s opposition to prevailing theories of climate change (Commentary, “An embarrassment of a senator,” Oct. 3, Oklahoma Gazette), which suppose that man-made greenhouse gases are responsible for upward trends in global temperatures. That is unfortunate; it is rarely helpful to personally denigrate those with differing views, and it avoids a real look at issues more complicated than either Inhofe or Meyers seems to understand.
