We voted ... not

Oklahoma is a conservative state. Just how conservative? Well, so much so that a little more than half of the population was unwilling in 2012 to progress up from their couch and to their voter precincts.

Barbarians at the gates


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
Ya have to love the Grand Old Tea Party these days. Fresh off being trounced by a black “Muslim-Kenyan-Socialist,” the unrepentant loonies are at it again, closing down the federal government until the president caves on their perpetual crusade to kill Obamacare (41-plus times and counting).

Shadid is ‘We the people’

2014 MAYORAL ELECTION


Commentary

Shauna Lawyer Struby
When I first met Ed Shadid in 2011, he was running for Oklahoma City’s Ward 2 council seat. I expected the standard superficial political gesture and thrust out my hand, saying, “Nice to meet you, Dr. Shadid.” He met my eyes directly, shook my hand and responded, “Please, just call me Ed.”
