Fans lose in lockout


Jonathan Willner
There is no question that the arrival of the Thunder has been a boon to basketball fans in Oklahoma. Having wrangled roughly $180 million in subsidies out of the city and state, we find the main beneficiaries of this largess at odds with each other.

From Bachelor to banquet

Stay tuned for the most dramatic March of Dimes banquet yet ...

Today marks the 36th annual March of Dimes Mercy Sports Headliner Awards Banquet, to be held on the floor of the Cox Convention Center. This event will honor athletes and coaches who have taken an active interest and brought national attention to the Oklahoma March of Dimes Chapter.

The national voluntary healthy agency's mission is to improve the health of babies by way of prevention and education.

Flying in to host for the evening is ABC's The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, who used to work and play in Oklahoma. As a former Oklahoma City University soccer player, he's personally interested in sports, as well as philanthropic ventures.

“I just wanted to find a way to come back to Oklahoma City. This was a great excuse to come back to a place that means a lot to me. It's where I started,” said Harrison. “To be asked to come back is a real honor for me. I'm very excited to come home and see everybody.”

Reserve a table by calling 943-1024. If you won't be in attendance tonight, you can still help by donating your time or money here.

Righting wrongs

OCU law students are working to identify and remedy cases of wrongful conviction.


C.G. Niebank
Although it’s said justice is blind, and thus fair, mistakes are sometimes made — and innocent people are wrongfully convicted of crimes.

C’mon, get slappy

Alloy Orchestra scores some pratfalls at OK Mozart.

As part of this week’s OK Mozart series in Oklahoma City, the Alloy Orchestra returns to perform a live soundtrack to silent films.

At 8 p.m. tonight at Oklahoma City University, the trio presents Masters of Slapstick, a 62-minute program of shorts starring some of the screen’s most legendary silent comedians: Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle.

Alloy Orchestra is known for crafting unique, original soundtracks to films that had none, using an array of found percussion instruments and state-of-the-art electronics. The Massachusetts-based group was part of last year’s OK Mozart festivities with Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, for which I interviewed Alloy leader Ken Winokur. It’ll give you a good idea of what to expect with tonight’s performance (as will the clip below), despite the difference in films being shown.

Tickets are $10-$20. For more information, visit —Rod Lott
