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?

The tipping point for families


Commentary

Howard Hendrick
The world has watched how Greece’s debt and financial woes have crippled Greece, the European markets and nearly brought down the world’s financial markets. Little Greece was nearly, and may yet be, the last straw — the tipping point for a global economic disaster.

Keeping an industry from fading to black


Commentary

Jill Simpson
The film industry and the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program are good for Oklahoma. In an industry driven by financial incentives, if the state Legislature eliminates the film rebate this session, our growing industry will likely die.

Read the constitution


Letters to the Editor

Carl Owen
Finally, a Republican who speaks the truth. In the article “Drug-testing for dollars” (News, Feb. 29, Oklahoma Gazette), when asked if we test [Temporary Assistance for Needy Families] applicants for drugs, why shouldn’t business owners applying for state incentives be drug tested as well, Republican Rep. Guy Liebmann replied, “If he hired somebody or brought in five more jobs, should we drug test him? He’s done the state a favor, putting them on the payroll and they’re going to pay taxes and use the local shops and eat out and so forth.”

Letters to the Editor

Robert D. Allen
Reasonable fiscal policies produce jobs and, as the Clinton administration demonstrated, also meet the financial needs of the nation and balance the budget.

Babies for Rush


Letters to the Editor

Concerning the Personhood bill, why not have everyone who is against abortion sign one list, and everyone in favor of choice, sign a different list.

A smarter criminal justice system

No school takeover


Commentary

Karl Springer
I want to directly address the people of Oklahoma City and explain my opinion on the potential state takeover of our schools on the state’s priority list: It is a terrible idea.

The country’s in trouble


Letters to the Editor

J.A. Gowman
In reference to Howard Hendrick’s editorial (“The tipping point for families,” March 7, Oklahoma Gazette), Howard is exactly right — he defines the problem elegantly, but does not cover the cause or the cure. Young people (anywhere in the world) will have sex, regardless of their economic status. When economic times are tough, what he describes is what will happen.
