Google-eyed for Inhofe


CFN

Gazette staff
Some people are so grouchy. Just ask Google. The Internet giant is still taking heat over a July 11 campaign fundraiser it held for Oklahoma’s senior U.S. senator and reigning climate-change denier, James Inhofe, R- Tulsa. It seems some people are still bent out of shape over it, particularly since Google is renowned for its environmentalism and efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

So color us shocked over the latest tell-all book by Laurey Williams herself, Shirley Jones.

Caviar dreams in Oklahoma

Rich people eat weird things. They eat fancy cheeses and drink expensive wines. They'll eat foie gras, which is really just fatty goose liver, but hey … it sounds fancy, right?

Comic-Coyne

Gazette staff
What's better than a comic book? An adult-themed comic book! And who more appropriate (or inappropriate, depending on how you look at it) to author one than Flaming Lips ringleader and doodler-in-chief Wayne Coyne?
