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.

Letters to the Editor

Russell W. Jones
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.

Legislators caved to drug companies


Letters to the Editor

Nancy Roche
Shame on you, Oklahoma legislators, for caving in to the pharmaceutical companies’ lobbying to keep pseudoephedrine over the counter and not make it by prescription only. I wonder how many lunches they bought you and your staff, and how many vacations they promised you and your families?

Who’s on drugs?


Letters to the Editor

David Orr
The new session is barely underway and our legislators have found time to write all manner of bat@$&* crazy bills about zygotes, stem cell sweeteners and green lighting the teaching of mythology in science class, and now they want to drug test others?

Wrongheaded war on drugs


Letters to the Editor

Clinton Wiles
Once again our Legislature and other public officials stand ready to protect us with laws to drastically reduce the amount of meth use in the state.

Child abuse not funny


Letters to the Editor

Reece Kepler
As a conservative reader of the Gazette, I come expecting to be disagreeable to, frustrated with, and even angered by the majority of its contents. I continue to read out of amusement and because the
