Exhausted exams

In the wake of glitches with online standardized testing, some school districts and state lawmakers question the validity of the exams.

Pants or no pants — e-fairness is needed


Letters to the Editor

Steve Schlegel
I find it laughable that Hal Stevens thinks so little of brick-and-mortar retailers that he’d call us stooges for the state government and “inefficient” presumably because we chose to base our business in the community (Letters, Hal Stevens, “Mucking up marketplace fairness,” Aug. 7, Gazette). I was insulted for myself and the other retailers who are advocating for the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) until I found out that Mr. Stevens is an eBay retailer. eBay is based around this loophole, and their lobbyists are paying through the nose to keep this loophole alive.

Word spread like a meme as the news appeared on sites such as Mashable, TechCrunch, The New York Times blog The Learning Network, The Washington Post website and, of course, Fox News — not to mention its appearance on The Oklahoman’s website, NewsOK, with the headline, “Thanks, Miley: ‘Twerking’ Now in Dictionary.”

Online shops need to collect taxes


Letters to the Editor

Steve Schlegel
While I understand that things move slowly in Washington, D.C., I simply don’t understand why it has taken more than 20 years for Congress to take action to help America’s local businesses.
