Irony Man


CFN

Gazette staff
It was a “good news, bad news” sort of verdict for Bradley Manning, the former U.S. Army private convicted of multiple charges stemming from his release of 700,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks. While the Crescent native was acquitted of the most serious charge of “aiding the enemy,” a military judge still found him guilty of 20 charges that potentially could mean more than 130 years in prison. Still, an “aiding the enemy” conviction could have meant life in prison, so he’s got that going for him.

Getting real


CFN

Gazette staff
U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Muskogee, surprised some hard-liners in his party recently when he denounced efforts by Senate Republicans to “gut” the Affordable Care Act — law of the land for, oh, going on four years now — by opposing any legislation that would fund it.

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.

Oh, what a beautiful moaning


CFN

Gazette staff
Being good Oklahomans, we can’t begin to count the number of times we’ve seen the 1955 musical Oklahoma! (although we’re guessing it roughly corresponds to the number of times we’ve heard the phrase “honey lamb”). So color us shocked over the latest tell-all book by Laurey Williams herself, Shirley Jones.
