Republicans are angry elitists


Letters to the Editor

Nathaniel Batchelder

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.

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.

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).

Wanda Jo Stapleton
All five of Oklahoma’s U.S. Congressmen voted on September 19 for House Resolution 3102, a measure that cuts $40 billion, over ten years, from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps.

Susan Schmidt
My husband and I are volunteers, ushering regularly at the Civic Center for the past 7 years. We found the current production of Wicked to be among the top two shows we have seen in 7 years, second only to The Lion King.

Is that the silhouette of a flying pig I see by the light of a blue moon? Or did this conservative reader agree with something Rev. Robin Myers penned in Oklahoma Gazette?
