Adam Soltani
In February 2013, Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett (R) announced the formation of the Oklahoma Legislative Caucus on Counterterrorism. The stated goal of this caucus is to help protect Oklahomans from the potential threat of terrorism.

Letters to the Editor

Lynn Rambo-Jones
Each year, Gov. Mary Fallin sponsors a food bank drive asking state employees to contribute. The food collected is donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. On first consideration, this seems like a laudable effort.

E. R. Kelly
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.

To intervene or not to intervene? I think this is great regardless of Congress’ voting result. People are now interested in hearing our story.

Deportation is too steep a penalty


Commentary

SUSAN COLLEY JOPLIN
While I have never previously commented publicly about any political controversy, I now feel compelled to speak out on an issue that has far-reaching political effects but which I believe is really a moral issue.

Republicans are angry elitists


Letters to the Editor

Nathaniel Batchelder
Republicans like Jonathan Small (Commentary, “The problem is cost, not coverage,” Oct. 9, Gazette) have shut down the government and threaten default on America’s debts because they could not get their way by legitimate means on three issues.

Good guys don’t have a gun problem


Letters to the Editor

Joe Moore
For “gun-control” politicians: On one side of the issue are roughly a hundred thousand armed criminals (bad guys). On the other side are a hundred million lawful, responsible gun owners (good guys) who are definitely not part of the problem.

Point: Streetcar route a beginning


Commentary

Jeff Bezdek
It has been more than 66 years since Oklahoma City had meaningful intracity rail transit. In 2009, voters took a huge leap toward our transit future by endorsing a $130 million-dollar downtown rail-based modern streetcar system and intermodal hub as part of MAPS 3.

Counterpoint: Streetcar budget defies reality


Commentary

Nancy K. Anderson
Now that the 4.5-mile downtown route for the MAPS 3 streetcar — Phase 1 — has been decided, the challenge will be to get it completed at a cost anywhere near the amount budgeted. The experience in other cities indicates it will cost far more to build — and to keep it running — than we’ve been told.

Letters to the Editor

Tim Parker
Stage Center has “outlived its use”? (News, “Center stage,” Sept. 18, Oklahoma Gazette) That comes from a man with an agenda (Kestrel Investments Management Corporation president Rainey Williams).

Barbarians at the gates


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
Ya have to love the Grand Old Tea Party these days. Fresh off being trounced by a black “Muslim-Kenyan-Socialist,” the unrepentant loonies are at it again, closing down the federal government until the president caves on their perpetual crusade to kill Obamacare (41-plus times and counting).
