Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Oh, for crying out loud, here we go again! M.G. Oxsen’s letter (“‘Designer’ debate,” May 18, Oklahoma Gazette), criticizing Kurt Hochenauer’s Commentary (“Point: More doctors, less preachers,“ April 13, Gazette) regarding evolution, again demonstrates an ignorance of basic science and evolution in particular.

Suggested reading — for everyone


Commentary

Carly Putnam
In the waning hours of the final day of the 2014 Oklahoma legislative session, in the midst of the debate over Oklahoma’s education standards, Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate, used a passage from Toni Morrison’s novel The Bluest Eye as an example of the “evils” of Common Core.
