Working toward walkability


Randy Entz

No matter what health statistic is considered, Oklahoma City generally does not fare very well. It has higher rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease than most of its peer cities. No doubt some of that can be attributed to personal decisions, but some of it is due to our built environment. We have built a city that, in most areas, makes travel by walking and cycling more difficult than driving a vehicle.

Walk the walk


Gazette staff
Although Oklahoma City has stepped up its game in, well, just about everything, we’ve yet to literally take more steps.

The future’s so bleak, I gotta wear shades.


Rod Lott
Cinema’s current master of disaster, Roland Emmerich (2012), produced but did not write or direct Hell, a post- apocalyptic film smaller in scope than what the man is used to, yet better crafted.

Zombie Skins: Salon de la Vie Morte features eerie images from a mix of artists who, unlike their subject, still have their guts intact. The exhibition runs through Oct. 8. Admission is free. Call 420-0119 or visit ahalenia.com/zombie.

The war on terror meets ‘The Walking Dead.’


Rod Lott
By sheer coincidence, Osombie arrived on my desk the same day I screened Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow's Oscar-worthy depiction about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Osombie begins where Zero ends: with the American military raid on bin Laden's compound on May 2, 2011. Whereas Zero puts bullets in the al-Qaeda leader's body, Osombie lets him inject himself with an aggressive pathogen so that, once he washes up on the Arabian Sea, he's a full-fledged zombie.
