Contraception and population


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In response to “Embryonic” by Dr. Dominic M. Pedulla (Letters, Oklahoma Gazette, March 27), I have to admit that I am taken aback by a man of science being so disconnected from the idea that unchecked procreation will not have negative consequences in the long term.

Saving oil


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
Not to discount Mickey McVay’s environmental education, but his “Kool-Aid’s global warming flavor” letter (Oct. 24, Oklahoma Gazette) has left a bad taste in my mouth. Reason being, he has previously identified himself in letters to the editor as having been an “oily,” as in one who works in the oil industry.

Creating violence


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In the wake of the recent Dark Knight Rises shooting spree, we should probably begin to consider the variables that lead to such tragic events.

Hyperbolic overdrive


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
The conservative response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare featured in Chicken-Fried News’ “Harumph, harumph, harumph” (June 28, okgazette.com) is a string of some of the most rhetorical and hyperbolic comments I’ve ever read.

Careful where you point that


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
“Locked, loaded and legal” (News, Peter Wright, May 9, Oklahoma Gazette) sounds like a gun guy’s wet dream, but it may present more problems than solutions. Concealed carry offers no indication to criminals that they are in for a fight, and thus the public presumption is that open carry is a deterrent. But there is a caveat.

Cat scratch killing


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
Ted Nugent’s recent comments at the National Rifle Association convention regarding President Obama (Chicken- Fried News, “Redneck rhapsody,” April 25, Oklahoma Gazette) have raised a valid question: At what point does a person’s free speech make him or her culpable in a murder?

Protect the Internet


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
On Jan. 18, many sites on the Internet either shut down or allowed limited access in an attempt to illustrate the potential oppression that could come from the proposed Internet regulations referred t

For the payroll tax cut


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
It’s the season of giving, so I can’t help but be amazed at how hard our Congress had been working to take something away from millions of employed Americans.

Shock and schadenfreude


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
I’m not sure which emotion best conveys my feelings with regard to Tom Furlong’s Nov. 16 response (“A shot in the dark,” Oklahoma Gazette) to James Cooper’s story, “From closet to community,” (Nov. 2 and 9, Gazette).

WWJD?


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In response to “Bah, humbug!” (Chicken-Fried News, Nov. 23, Gazette) in which U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe claimed he would never attend Tulsa’s Holiday Parade of Lights because it nixes the word “Christmas,” I have to say, good for him.

Moral 'Oral'


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
I have a couple of problems with Frank Riddick’s “Oral argument” (Letters, Oct. 5, Gazette). His response to Greg Horton’s “Walk this way” article (Sept. 21, Gazette) tries its hardest to find contradiction in Randy Potts’ interpretation of Christianity by utilizing mental jujitsu to prove that same interpretation would allow for murder.

Disraeli conflict


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz

I would like to illustrate an observation that I made while reading Jason Reese’s “Education as a common good” Commentary in the Sept. 7 Oklahoma Gazette.

‘Stop yelling, start listening'


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In the July 27 issue of the Gazette, Marty Morelli (“The right facts”) continues this attempt to excoriate progressives using the very same tactic that he originally used in his “Hitler was a progressive” diatribe on June 29.

‘Christian’ nation ‘going to hell’


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
I am flabbergasted but in no way surprised by your “Do as I say” Chicken- Fried News article in the July 20 Gazette.

Slipping Mickey


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In the June 1 edition of the Gazette, Mickey McVay wrote a scathing letter (“Discouraging words”) implying that the negative names that liberals use to define conservatives detract from intelligent political conversation (a letter I rebuked in the June 15 issue with “The gospel according to a ‘liberal’”).
