Social media gets the finger ... of blame. Again.


CFN

None
Who’s to blame? Answering that question is a pastime every bit as American as baseball and overeating.

Taking the bus one stop too far


CFN

Gazette staff

Life can be tough when you refuse to come out of your room. Especially when that room is a bus.

Especially when that bus is filled with a rap star’s all-adult posse.

Lock your doors and batten down the hatches, Oklahoma. A ruling by a federal judge might just make the state more susceptible to terrorism.

Thunder rolls


CFN

Gazette staff
A name change might be in store for a short stretch of S. Robinson Avenue running from Reno Avenue to S.W. Third. Not coincidentally, the roadway runs parallel to Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Wanna get lucky?


CFN

Gazette staff
A telephone number listed on the back of recently sold Oklahoma lottery tickets and on the Oklahoma Lottery Commission’s website had nothing to do with potentially winning millions of dollars and everything to do with talking dirty.

The sporting life


CFN

Gazette staff

Oklahoma lost a great in local TV broadcasting last week with the death of Jerry Park at age 76. A sports anchor at KOCO Channel 5 for 25 years, Park had helped make KOCO a ratings winner with his affability and folksy charm.

The smell of collusion?


CFN

Gazette staff
Resident climate-change denier U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Tulsa, smells a rat. Well, actually he smells collusion, but we hear that rats and collusion do have similar scents.

Whoa, Nelly!


CFN

Gazette staff
Well, for all the hullabaloo earlier this year about horse slaughter, it appears Oklahoma won’t be home to any horse slaughterhouses anytime soon. Animal-rights activists can stand down, and fast-food lovers can continue enjoying their low-grade burgers without coming across any mane.

Miranda rights


CFN

Gazette staff
At a Miranda Lambert concert, you’re more than welcome to hoot and holler and spill beer all over your Tony Lamas. But don’t start a fight in front of the performer.

Mr. Popular


CFN

Gazette staff
If Chicken-Fried News were to hazard a guess as to the least popular legislator at the state Capitol, our money would be on state Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City. The guy has been a consistent thorn in the side — or perhaps a fleshier body part — of House speakers, and the current one, Lawton Republican T.W. Shannon, is no exception.

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.
