Cruel and unusual?


Letters to the Editor

David Slane
Recently, an Oklahoma County district judge ruled the secrecy element of the state’s lethal injection death penalty process was unconstitutional.

The secrecy has extended to the drug supplier as well as the name of the executioner.

Americans are against the next war. Ongoing negotiations with Iran could lead to normalized relations, even a major trading partner with the U.S. Iran would import U.S. beef and grains, benefiting Oklahoma producers. U.S. firms serving the petroleum and other industries are eager to open offices in Iran and become trading partners. Releasing Iran’s oil production would lower the world oil price, giving Americans relief at the gas pumps.

Phil Bacharach
I appreciate that Chicken-Fried News is supposed to be irreverent and clever, but it should at least remain accurate. Unfortunately, the Feb. 19 brief, “Money to spend,” (Oklahoma Gazette) isn’t particularly irreverent or clever, and it’s not accurate.

So, Sen. James Inhofe sent me an e-mail today asking me to share my tale of woe and misery due to Obamacare. This was my reply, although I doubt it was what they were wanting.

Apparently, fear and the need to be superhuman is alive and well in Hollywood. Notice how many movies of superheroes have come out recently. In 1970-80, only four superhero movies were released, compared to 115 released since 2001.
