Meth is not mirth


Letters to the Editor

Andy Behrens
I must say a few words about your choice of cover for the Jan. 25 issue (News, “I want a new drug”), because I don't think I've ever seen a major publication in our city or state run something so exploitative and repulsive.

Legislators caved to drug companies


Letters to the Editor

Nancy Roche
Shame on you, Oklahoma legislators, for caving in to the pharmaceutical companies’ lobbying to keep pseudoephedrine over the counter and not make it by prescription only. I wonder how many lunches they bought you and your staff, and how many vacations they promised you and your families?

Drama

Rod Lott

Losing bet

Oklahoma’s casino gaming has exploded, but funding of gambling addiction programs hasn’t kept pace.


News

C.G. Niebank
Although addicted gamblers in Oklahoma are estimated to number well more than 100,000, only $750,000 is allotted by the state to treat the problem. As the number of problem gamblers grows, those charged with administering treatment are tasked with doing more and more with only allocated portions of that yearly $750,000.

New Zoo revue

With new management and upgrades, the iconic Zoo Amphitheatre venue returns to rock.


Music

Louis Fowler
As the bitter battle over management of the Zoo Amphitheatre played out in public last summer, Oklahoma City music fans may have worried whether the outdoor venue at 2011 N.E. 50th would be open for business this summer.

Aisha Eustache — Love & Addiction


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
These days, it’s hard to find that classically soulful R&B sound. With so many manufactured pop divas’ vocal trills and high-pitched squeaks masquerading as music, R&B sadly has become a vapid wasteland.

What's to hide?

Nothing, says mayoral candidate Ed Shadid. But a battle looms to keep his divorce records private.


News

Tim Farley
Disclosing sealed court records connected to Oklahoma City mayoral candidate Ed Shadid’s divorce in 2007 outweighs embarrassment or harm it may cause the Ward 2 councilman, his ex-wife or their children, according to a leading expert on government openness and public records.
