Point: What is the endgame?


Chris Smith
We have heard praise regarding the improvement and development of downtown Oklahoma City. With cranes within view of almost every window downtown, and new roadblocks popping up daily, the morning commute is becoming a game of labyrinth with David Bowie laughing as we try to find our parking spot.

Point: Streetcar route a beginning


Jeff Bezdek
It has been more than 66 years since Oklahoma City had meaningful intracity rail transit. In 2009, voters took a huge leap toward our transit future by endorsing a $130 million-dollar downtown rail-based modern streetcar system and intermodal hub as part of MAPS 3.

Fastball it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you had a radio at any point in the late ’90s, “Fastball” isn’t just a baseball term to you. You probably know the Austinbased alt-rock band from ditties like “The Way,” which has been stuck in our heads since 1998. See them 8 p.m. Friday at Bricktown Music Hall, 103 Flaming Lips Alley. Chris Sullivan and Junebug Spade will also perform. Tickets are $20. Call 600-6092 or visit

Minimum wage isn’t a “market wage”

Bob Waldrop
Labor Commissioner Mark Costello’s argument against the minimum wage (Commentary, "OKC benefits from market cages,” March 26, Oklahoma Gazette) rests on a false premise. We do not have a free market for labor. The wages of low income workers are not “market wages.” Our economy is tightly regulated to favor capital over labor and to suppress wages.
