Clear and 'present' changer


Gazette staff
Let's get this straight: U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Muskogee, thinks stalling the appointments of exceptionally qualified judges is ... a travesty! A sham! A travesty of a sham!

Not so hot


Gazette staff

Rice returns

Former state senator Andrew Rice is back in OKC, this time as head of the Variety Care Foundation.


Mark Beutler

Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
Tom Furlong (Letters, “Why not move already?,” Oct. 24, Oklahoma Gazette) writes, “To think humans could alter the climate is hubris at its most significant.” Really?

It would be the height of hubris to think that increasing levels of greenhouse gases would fail to result in greenhouse warming as physics demands.
