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.

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.

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.

When guns don't help


Letters to the Editor

John R. Junger III
Please let me weigh in on the debate about the proper use of firearms in our society. Robert Morris’ assertion (Letters, “Guns and freedom,” Aug. 15, Oklahoma Gazette) that retired Lt. Colonel Richard Westmoreland (”How many children must die,” July 25) has not seriously considered the meaning of that oath is a little disrespectful.

Missing chicken fry


Letters to the Editor

Philip Maguire
Regarding Greg Elwell’s piece on chicken-fried steaks (Food and Drink, “Chicken fry country,” Sept. 26, Oklahoma Gazette) — any mention of them without discussing Del Rancho is sorely incomplete.

Capital sentence for pedophiles


Letters to the Editor

Jeannie Yarger
Oklahoma likes to pass weird laws that have no basis in reality, like the voter ID law, the no-Sharia-law law, and the law that keeps marijuana illegal. Oklahoma government should now pass a weird law that is based on reality. Since Oklahoma has a horrendous record of child abuse, and since pedophilia has a 100 percent recidivism rate, we should give pedophiles the death penalty.

Missing the point


Letters to the Editor

Kevin Connolly
In regard to Oklahoma Gazette’s “Friday Night Frustration” (News, Clifton Adcock, Sept. 12), Oklahoma City Public Schools athletic director Keith Sinor is attempting to apply a Band-Aid to athletics when he should be questioning the larger issue of education.

Proud to be a patriot


Letters to the Editor

Megan Hodge
It really bothers me that the word “patriot” has come to have a negative connotation (News, “Patriot acts,” Clifton Adcock, Aug. 31, Oklahoma Gazette). Since when did it become wrong to support the country we live in and to attempt to uphold the ideals that our Founding Fathers believed in and our God-given rights?

In praise of 'Thunderstruck'


Letters to the Editor

Rosemary Stafford
I wonder if the 15-year-old kid who wrote “Fouled Out” (Film, Harrison Lott, Aug. 29, Oklahoma Gazette) represents most teenagers. It is sad that he couldn’t enjoy a lighthearted movie. Thunderstruck is tops, in my opinion. I sure do hope Kevin Durant doesn’t take to heart what was written.
