Don’t count out the tea party

The average Oklahoman aligns more with the tea party philosophy of limited government and lower taxes.


Commentary

Kyle D. Loveless
In the recent Oklahoma City Council elections, all of the candidates aligned with the tea party movement lost. Critics, news pieces and bloggers across the metro and state were using these losses as a setback or high-water mark of how much influence the tea party folks have in Oklahoma.

‘Marijuana is here to stay’


Letters to the Editor

Ron Ferrell
When I moved to Oklahoma City in the 1980s, there was “liquor by the wink,” and the other loophole was to bring your own bottle in order to have a cocktail, or become a member of that club. Liquor by the drink was illegal, but there were ways around the law.

Music
