Better off with ‘Don't ask, don't tell’ repeal?


Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
Are America’s gay and lesbian service members better off with DADT now on the way to the trash can of prejudice? Are gays and lesbians in civilian life better off without DADT on the books?

Apparently, some of the airmen at Tinker Air Force Base were getting a little bit more altitude than is considered lawful by the military.

Funny farm


CFN

Gazette staff
Sen. Jim Inhofe has given us many WTF-did-he-just-say moments over the years, but one of the WTF-iest came during a Dec. 12 speech to the Tulsa Metro Chamber.

Act of Valor

By sea, by air, by land, with cheese.


Action

Rod Lott
“Based on real acts of valor,” Act of Valor may prove a better Navy recruitment film than action film in the short term. While not the first movie depicting Navy SEALs doing their thing, it's the first movie to do so starring actual, active-duty Navy SEALs. Seriously — for privacy reasons, their names aren't even in the credits.

New war, new casualties

Back from war in Afghanistan, many Oklahoma veterans are finding a new battleground in civilian life.


News

Ben Fenwick
World War II: The invasion of Italy at Anzio, a beachhead south of Rome, proved to be one of the grimmest battles fought by Americans. A force of more than 150,000 troops that included Oklahoma’s 45th Infantry Division — the Thunderbirds — spent months fighting the Germans for the road to Rome. They suffered some of the worst casualties of the war. By the end, 43,000 Allied troops, nearly a third, were killed or injured.

Newspeak


CFN

Gazette staff
One of the legacies left by 1984 author George Orwell is having his name describe how totalitarian governments can use language to distort words, so much so that words or phrases could actually end up describing the exact opposite of what they purport to mean.

Twilight’s last gleaming

Oklahomans of the World War II generation are leaving us at an alarming rate. But their stories will live on.


News

Ben Fenwick
At 19, Ralph Fenwick landed on the shores of Japan’s southernmost island at what would become World War II’s worst battle in the Pacific. It was April 1 — April Fools’ Day — and it also happened to be Easter Sunday.

Hurting morale


CFN

Gazette staff
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R- Tulsa, is in a gang? Indeed, he is — well, according to a military-justice advocacy group called the Agenda Project Action Fund.
