‘No tolerance’ doesn’t teach


Commentary

John Thompson
The bipartisan MAPS for Kids Student Achievement Committee knew that Oklahoma City could not increase student performance without first creating safe and orderly schools. We also knew that would be our toughest challenge.

Is this hearing place obsolete? After founding, nursing, and sustaining numerous theater companies, those ineffable entities, neither thing nor place, nor just knots of artists contending with themselves, but also made of the eyes and ears of those...

Oklahoma’s public defenders


Commentary

Robin Meyers
I am not talking about those brave, idealistic, underpaid lawyers who work to protect the last and the least, but KFOR, KOCO, KWTV and other local media outlets whose job it has become to defend the honor and reputation of our state when it is under attack by “foreigners” — aka, Australian politicians, lying journalists at Sports Illustrated or even the “unorthodox” Ed Shadid.

Letters to the Editor

Kelly Kossuth
Typically, I look forward to reading Oklahoma Gazette each week, but this week, I was pretty surprised and disappointed to read about the “Ex-gay brigade” (News, Sept. 11), or as I shall call it as I see it, the “bully brigade.”

Richard Hardin
Ref: “On the right side of history” by Adam Soltani (Commentary, Aug. 28, Gazette). Our freedom of religion in this country has always allowed us to criticize other religions, even the Pope, and has allowed us to try to explain our religion to others in hopes they will join ours, which we, naturally, think is the best.

Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
Thanks for publishing that great commentary (Sept. 11, Gazette) titled “Contraception empowers women” by Ryan Kiesel. Kiesel said that Oklahoma legislators passed an amendment to “limit access to emergency contraception in Oklahoma.” Limiting access to emergency contraception would undoubtedly mean more unintended pregnancies, thus the likelihood of more abortions — abortions which these same legislators fanatically oppose! What a revolting development!

I have to express my complete disdain and frustration in regards to your “Best of OKC” awards (Life, Aug. 21, Gazette).

Resilient repetition

What about the other issues that emerge more slowly and with fewer cliches nearly 6 months after May's weather disaster?


Commentary

Kurt Hochenauer
Anyone who has lived in the Oklahoma City area for a long time knows the post-disaster refrains by heart.

Atheist Rebecca Vitsmun is quoted in Gazette on Aug. 7 as saying, “I decided it was impossible for the god that I believed in to condemn billions of people in Asia, Africa and across the world to eternal damnation for not knowing who Jesus was… I decided that all religions were worshiping the same thing as long as they believed that good was the thing to strive for.”

Contraception empowers women


Commentary

Ryan Kiesel
Almost a century has passed since Margaret Sanger was arrested in Brooklyn. Her crime? Establishing a clinic dedicated to offering free contraceptives to women.

Pants or no pants — e-fairness is needed


Letters to the Editor

Steve Schlegel
I find it laughable that Hal Stevens thinks so little of brick-and-mortar retailers that he’d call us stooges for the state government and “inefficient” presumably because we chose to base our business in the community (Letters, Hal Stevens, “Mucking up marketplace fairness,” Aug. 7, Gazette). I was insulted for myself and the other retailers who are advocating for the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) until I found out that Mr. Stevens is an eBay retailer. eBay is based around this loophole, and their lobbyists are paying through the nose to keep this loophole alive.

Corporate democracy isn’t viable


Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
Why, oh, why have so many Americans been hoodwinked by the gross idea that corporate democracy can be exported to countries that do not want it and don’t have the society to implement it?

OKC schools need real change

We must teach kids to be students, and that cannot be done with quick fixes.


Commentary

John Thompson
After more than 35 years in the education realm, retiring Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Karl Springer said that he is most proud of three policies he helped implement.

God makes us good?


Letters to the Editor

None
In the Aug. 6 cover story “Atheist” (News, Carmel Perez Snyder, Aug. 12, Oklahoma Gazette), Ms. Rebecca Vitsmun said, “I still believe that as long as people believe goodness is the thing they are striving for, then we are on the same page.”
