Annie Hall

Love is too weak a word.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
What’s there to say about Annie Hall? It’s an American classic, arguably Woody Allen’s finest film and perhaps one of the best romantic comedies of all time. The fact that it served as a turning point for Allen from full-bore comedies to more ambitious (if just as funny) stuff can make it easy to take for granted.

News

Phil Bacharach
Seven years ago, Gov. Brad Henry signed into law a set of education reforms that included a requirement for high school students to pass at least four of seven end-of-instruction exams as a condition for graduation. Now that mandate finally is slated to take effect this year, and some opponents of the measure want it scrapped.

The country’s in trouble


Letters to the Editor

J.A. Gowman
In reference to Howard Hendrick’s editorial (“The tipping point for families,” March 7, Oklahoma Gazette), Howard is exactly right — he defines the problem elegantly, but does not cover the cause or the cure. Young people (anywhere in the world) will have sex, regardless of their economic status. When economic times are tough, what he describes is what will happen.
