We’re No. 2!


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahomans are a proud bunch, and we’re especially proud of the progress we have made in the last few years. We have an NBA team and a fancy new skyscraper in downtown OKC, and food trucks are sprouting up like weeds — portable, delicious weeds.

CFN

Gazette staff
Bet you wouldn’t have thought the biggest company in Oklahoma would run a chain of gas stations, truck stops and convenience stores.

CFN

Gazette staff

We’re No. 11


CFN

Gazette staff
The Oklahoma state government is the 11th most corrupt in the union, according to yet another list. Researchers at Indiana University and the University of Hong Kong studied 25,000 convictions of public officials in the U.S. and blah, blah, blah.

Steely Dan


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Steely Dan rocking out in Oklahoma City isn’t anything new, but it has been a while. The last time jazz-rock gods Walter Becker and Donald Fagen visited this great city was in 1972 — as in more than four decades ago — and that’s why the band’s triumphant return will be a more intimate event with limited seating. The show begins at 8 p.m. Monday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. Tickets are $46-$122. Call 800-745-3000 or visit chesapeakearena.com.

Flexible fuzz


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma often gets unfairly portrayed in the media, but then we do something like this and have to wonder if maybe we weren’t asking for it all along. This is the stuff of idiot buddy comedies starring the likes of Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, except it’s real and we have nobody but ourselves to blame for our tainted image.

Can’t keep this man down


CFN

Gazette staff
Being ousted from a company can’t keep Aubrey McClendon, former CEO of Chesapeake Energy, down. McClendon was forced out last year after a governance scandal and other boring business problems.
