Foes may fear Thunder’s new X factor, ‘The Beard’

Harden needs to strengthen his game for Thunder to excel


Clark Matthews
There are many things the Oklahoma City Thunder know they can expect on a nightly basis. Whenever they lace up, Russell Westbrook will be unstoppable going to the basket. If Kevin Durant does not score at least 25 points, it is an anomaly.

God Bless America

‘God Bless’ Bobcat Goldthwait for making this savage satire.


Rod Lott
With God Bless America, writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait slices a wound on our country's collective stupidity, then wrings a lemon wedge into its opening. Too bad his targets aren't likely to watch it on purpose. And if they did, they're less likely to get the joke. Their loss.

Shot with his own gun


Gazette staff
To loosely paraphrase the sentiment of the National Rifle Association: Guns don’t kill penises; felons with lousy luck do. Just ask Tavares Donnell Colbert, an ex-con recently arrested for possession of a firearm — but not before he had done gone and shot himself in the genitals.

Letters to the Editor

Richard Westmoreland
The headlines the morning of July 20 read: Aurora, Colo., 12 dead and at least 50 wounded. The reality is this is nothing new, and it’s going to happen again.

The former attorney for convicted pharmacist Jerome Ersland defends himself against accusations of incompetence and unethical behavior.


Phil Bacharach
UPDATE: Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater disputed Irven Box's contention that Jerome Ersland ever was offered a plea deal. Prater told Oklahoma Gazette that Box told prosecutors Ersland strongly believed he had done nothing wrong and had ruled out the possibility of serving any prison time. In light of that, Prater said he told Box, there was no reason even to discuss a possible plea bargain.

When guns don't help

Letters to the Editor

John R. Junger III
Please let me weigh in on the debate about the proper use of firearms in our society. Robert Morris’ assertion (Letters, “Guns and freedom,” Aug. 15, Oklahoma Gazette) that retired Lt. Colonel Richard Westmoreland (”How many children must die,” July 25) has not seriously considered the meaning of that oath is a little disrespectful.

Okie country cutie Carrie Underwood is guilty of many things: having a powerful singing voice, being hot, winning Grammys, being hot, lending legitimacy to American Idol, being hot, marrying a hockey player, being hot and being hot.
