What’s up? Docs

You’re in for a mostly gripping marathon of global challenges with this year’s Oscar nominees for documentary shorts.


Features

Rod Lott
Some suggestions before 7:30 p.m. Thursday, when the Oklahoma City Museum of Art screens this year’s five Oscar-nominated documentary short films, each roughly 40 minutes in length. Visit the restroom first. Get comfy. Have some Kleenex handy. And perhaps a handful of St. John’s wort.

Class act

Keep out!


CFN

Gazette staff
During a recent debate on one of his bills, our favorite south Oklahoma City legislator who never returns our calls (sniff, sniff), Sen. Ralph Shortey, cracked wise about the state erecting a wall around its borders to keep out illegal immigrants.

Hang in there

How to fashionably beat a hangover


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
OK, so I’m a pretty responsible drinker. Glass (or two) of wine with dinner, cocktails with friends — those are my M.O., not Jägerbombs and keggers.
