Blinded to science


Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Oklahoma has received a second consecutive “F” for its science teaching standards from the Fordham Foundation, resulting in much commentary about the need to improve those standards. All the states bordering Oklahoma received a higher grade.

Choosing school choice


Letters to the Editor

Matthew Trimble
In Karl Springer’s commentary (”No school takeover,” Oklahoma Gazette, March 21), the superintendent’s train analogy is accurate.

‘An unforgivable breach’


Letters to the Editor


Being raised mostly in Oklahoma in the ’50s and ’60s, my parents and teachers taught me that even when I disagree with someone’s ideas, it does not give me the right to be disrespectful to them and, above all else, never disrespect the office of an elected leader.

Faulty testing


Letters to the Editor


After reading “Testing, Testing” (News, Phil Bacharach, March 14, Oklahoma Gazette) I feel the need to respond to this double standard.

Showing women ‘who’s boss’


Letters to the Editor


The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (men!) and Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich (more men!) strongly oppose President Obama’s requirement that women have free health insurance coverage for contraceptives.

The country’s in trouble


Letters to the Editor

J.A. Gowman
In reference to Howard Hendrick’s editorial (“The tipping point for families,” March 7, Oklahoma Gazette), Howard is exactly right — he defines the problem elegantly, but does not cover the cause or the cure. Young people (anywhere in the world) will have sex, regardless of their economic status. When economic times are tough, what he describes is what will happen.

I really enjoy the letters you publish, but there is one thing that bothers me.

Great times for OKC


Letters to the Editor

Sandy Meyers
To live in Oklahoma City today is exciting. The approval by the Oklahoma City Council to restructure Centennial Plaza or Civic Center park is a great gift to all of us. Making this prominent property a spectacular centerpiece for the arts and civic affairs gives us all a feeling of pride and excitement.

An uphill fight


Letters to the Editor

Pamela Byrd
I can only hope that the photograph taken of Wilson Elementary School kids at lunch (“A Heavy Duty, Rachel Curtis, March 14, Gazette) is archival, or the Oklahoma Fit Kids Coalition really has its work cut out for it.

Read the constitution


Letters to the Editor

Carl Owen
Finally, a Republican who speaks the truth. In the article “Drug-testing for dollars” (News, Feb. 29, Oklahoma Gazette), when asked if we test [Temporary Assistance for Needy Families] applicants for drugs, why shouldn’t business owners applying for state incentives be drug tested as well, Republican Rep. Guy Liebmann replied, “If he hired somebody or brought in five more jobs, should we drug test him? He’s done the state a favor, putting them on the payroll and they’re going to pay taxes and use the local shops and eat out and so forth.”

Babies for Rush


Letters to the Editor

Ed Hart
Concerning the Personhood bill, why not have everyone who is against abortion sign one list, and everyone in favor of choice, sign a different list.

‘Fiscal folly’


Letters to the Editor

Robert D. Allen
Reasonable fiscal policies produce jobs and, as the Clinton administration demonstrated, also meet the financial needs of the nation and balance the budget.

Drug testing no answer


Letters to the Editor

Kevin Burns
Trust me: I know it feels good to take the stand that we don’t want our welfare dollars going to drug addicts. I still believe that, but I also used to think that universal drug testing to make that stand was the answer.

‘Snuffing’ out life


Letters to the Editor

Bill Davidson
In response to Wanda Jo Stapleton’s Jan. 18 letter to the editor, “Back to the Dark Ages”: That’s an unfortunate analogy, Wanda Jo. I’m pretty sure there were no easy abortions back in the Dark Ages.
