‘Stoning’ Sally

In Sally Kern’s forthcoming tome, the Republican lawmaker describes bloggers, activists and media casting verbal stones.


News

Clifton Adcock
Few people in Oklahoma politics are as polarizing as state Rep. Sally Kern. Beloved by some, reviled by others, the preacher’s wife, schoolteacher, grandmother and state representative has made national headlines more than once.

Gifts for that great guy called Dad

Not every father loves OU football. Here’s what to get him for Father’s Day.

I consistently fail at Father’s Day. I’m sorry, Dad, I love you, but I never have any idea what to get you. There are only so many variations on the theme of golf one can buy as a present, after all.

So, for the rest of you out there that may have waited ’til the last possible second to show Dad you really care, here are some ideas.

For the Intellectual:
Bow ties. He already likes to read and probably wears glasses. Bow ties are the next logical step. Head to Steven Giles to check out some snazzy neck bows. Plus, the friendly, helpful staff can even give you a tutorial.

For the Wino:
This category is made for my father-in-law. If your dad is all about the vino, check out writer Greg Horton’s rundown of the best wine for Dad in this week’s Oklahoma Gazette.

For the Foodie:
Talk about perfect for your food-loving father. The Tasting Room offers cooking classes in a really lovely setting. Upcoming classes include cold foods, New Orleans cuisine and tailgating. Also check out [Artspace] at Untitled’s “A Taste of Art” cooking classes. The next class covers Mediterranean cuisine on June 25.

For the Geek:
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds (aka Nathan Fillion) shared his Father’s Day gizmo picks with Vulture. This guy knows how to keep a Firefly-class transport ship in the air, so I think you should trust him when he says Dad would love a Microvision Laser Pico Projector. (And yes, I’m talking about Joss Whedon’s beloved-but-canceled “Firefly,” for those who don’t live in Nerdistan with me.)

For the Adventurer:
Lucky you, getting the fun dad! Dad’s always up for an adventure, so why not head over to Rocktown Climbing Gym for a day of indoor climbing and bouldering? Or, check out OKC Kayak to hit Oklahoma’s waterways. They even offer a special “Dads and Daughters” and a Father’s Day paddle.

‘God calling us’

Oklahoma’s freshman congressman shares his stance on issues facing the nation.


News

Clifton Adcock
“This is not courage; this is just obedience. This is what we (Lankford and his wife) sense God calling us to do, and we’re just doing it,” Lankford said. “We came to a point about a year and a half ago where we knew we would be grandparents one day telling our grandchildren about the time we didn’t follow God if we don’t do this.

Indie

Stephen Carradini
Givers’ “In Light” does not capture the exuberant magic that the band puts out live.

Merle's haggard accusations


Letters to the Editor

Joshua D. Zambrano
In response to Merle Wright (Letters, “Adam and Eve 101,” June 22, Gazette), I would agree with Merle that he should indeed re-read it, since he very much did miss something.

Rob Bennett (Letters, “Ignorance isn’t bliss,” June 29) finds fault with Oklahoma Gazette for publishing my views on various subjects. Like many liberals, he does not bother to check the facts,
