Life’s a beach house

At one point or another, everyone has to reassess and regroup.

Payback politics?


CFN

Gazette staff
Who knew weather had, as Stephen Colbert might say, a well-known political bias? That seemed to be the case last week as the tornado that leveled Moore also reignited a long-running debate in Washington, D.C., over federal spending for emergencies. Republicans say Democrats dress up emergency spending bills with unneeded extras, while Dems counter that Repubs don’t want to spend money for victims of natural disasters.

Oklahomers


CFN

Gazette staff
If there’s one thing we Oklahomans take pride in — at least now that the Thunder season’s over — it’s our football. Arguably the most prideful of all is University of Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, who’s never shied from an opportunity to boast about the prestigious nature of both his program and its Big 12 conference.

The I-word


CFN

Gazette staff
It’s been a rough few weeks for the Obama administration, what with a couple of scandals — some more legitimately scandalous than others — rocking the nation’s capital and consuming the 24/7 cable news cycle.

Married or bust!


CFN

Gazette staff
Get hitched and get rich. Say “I do” and the money will roll right in. At least that’s the impression one might get from Gov. Mary Fallin and state House Speaker T.W. Shannon, R-Lawton, both of whom trumpeted a recently signed law designed to promote marriage to counter various social ills.

Getting right with welfare


CFN

Gazette staff
Chicken-Fried News isn’t sure if there’s been a rash of welfare recipients frittering away their assistance on booze and lap dances, but sometimes it just pays to think ahead. And so it was that Gov. Mary Fallin on May 13 signed Senate Bill 667.

Brown sees green

Gazette staff
They say fame is fleeting, but they don't tell you why that’s so. It's because fame ain't got time for dat.

Touchdown


CFN

Gazette staff
If you’re the type who’s been waitin’ all day for Faith Hill to ring in Sunday Night Football on NBC, well, come this fall, you’ll be waitin’ all day for Carrie Underwood to do so. The 30-year-old Checotah native will replace Hill as singer of the prime-time NFL showcase’s (regrettably) catchy theme song.

Tardy justice


CFN

Gazette staff
Few people love being summoned for jury duty (and you’ve gotta be wary of those who do). It interrupts the daily flow and, in most cases, is nothing like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Lips ‘lust’


CFN

Gazette staff
At this point, it’s almost more shocking when there’s not any nudity in a Flaming Lips music video. So the recently released video for “You Lust” — the sprawling, 13-minute centerpiece of the Oklahoma City band’s excellent new album, The Terror — is basically just par for the course.

Zam-boneheaded

If you’ve ever been to a hockey game, you’re surely familiar with the Zamboni — you know, the big vehicle that glides around the rink to smooth out the ice between periods.

That’s kick-bass!


CFN

Gazette staff
All together now: We’re No. 17! We’re No. 17! We’re No. 17! (And 29 and 56, to be exact.)

Mack the strife


CFN

Gazette staff
Oh, Seattle, isn't it time to move on? Yes, Oklahoma City has your old NBA team. But that was five years ago. Let go of the anger.

Lock and load


CFN

Gazette staff
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, believes Barack Obama might qualify for an episode of Hoarders because he’s trying to infringe on your Second Amendment rights. Dude, it’s so obvious!

None dare call it ‘expansion’


CFN

Gazette staff
It’s not what you said — it’s how you said it. You’ve heard that before, right? (We just wanna make sure our parents weren’t the only ones with that gem.) At any rate, a recent poll demonstrates that truism when it comes to questions of Medicaid expansion.
