Super sizing


CFN

Gazette staff

Snow job


CFN

Gazette staff
If you paid any attention to TV meteorologists on Christmas Eve, you might have rushed out to purchase bottled water, shovels and other items necessary to handle the predicted snowpocalypse. Heck, you might’ve even tried gnawing off a foot, just to stave off inevitable postblizzard starvation.

Gazette staff
Anyone who grew up in the OKC area between the 1960s and ‘80s likely has fond memories of Ho-Ho and Pokey.

Oklahoma’s public defenders


Commentary

Robin Meyers
I am not talking about those brave, idealistic, underpaid lawyers who work to protect the last and the least, but KFOR, KOCO, KWTV and other local media outlets whose job it has become to defend the honor and reputation of our state when it is under attack by “foreigners” — aka, Australian politicians, lying journalists at Sports Illustrated or even the “unorthodox” Ed Shadid.

We would love to tell you that a man landed himself in the slammer after lobbing a cup of his own feces at an Oklahoma City police officer.
