The Right to Love: An American Family

A documentary follows one gay couple’s fight for ‘The Right to Love.’


Rod Lott
Just handfuls of hours ago, as part of Election Day, the Senate gained its first openly gay senator. Even to a heterosexual male like me, the win of Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin is an encouraging step that our country is slowly starting to accept that we aren’t all alike, that differences should be celebrated, rather than feared.

Misleading figures

Letters to the Editor

Jon Trushenski
Holding up California as an example of a failed state government is a mistake. Yes, there is outmigration from California, but their population density is still 241 people per square mile; Oklahoma’s is 55 So as bad as Mike Brake (Commentary, “Oklahoma’s postelection rise,” Nov. 21, Oklahoma Gazette) claims Californians have it, multitudes more are staying than are leaving. California private-sector employment has averaged over 20,000 new jobs per month since 2010; Oklahoma has managed about 3,000 per month over the same period. Californians voted to raise their own taxes this year, very likely for the same reason that MAPS was approved by the citizens of Oklahoma City three times — they were smart enough to recognize that the government needs to do some things that the private sector can’t or won’t do, especially in the area of social safety nets and quality-of-life improvements.
