Stage center isn’t dead yet


Letters to the Editor

Tim Parker
Stage Center has “outlived its use”? (News, “Center stage,” Sept. 18, Oklahoma Gazette) That comes from a man with an agenda (Kestrel Investments Management Corporation president Rainey Williams).

Day of the Dead

Eat it up.


Horror

Patrick Crain
With the exception of George Lucas’s Star Wars movies, few franchises that laid their foundation on the big screen were as culturally significant as George A. Romero’s Dead films. Everything about our conception of zombies derive from Romero’s creations. Before Night of the Living Dead — Romero’s stark, groundbreaking drive-in shocker from 1968 — zombies were barely in the public’s collective wheelhouse. Usually featured as trance-like beings who were used as slave labor, zombies were more tools of an insidious puppet master than a force unto themselves. Heck, before Night of the Living Dead, the term “undead” was mostly used to describe vampires.

Welcome home, Mr. Inhofe


CFN

Gazette staff
Welcome back to CFN, Mr. Inhofe. As you know, the Oklahoman and Republican U.S. Senator has been an outspoken critic of the Affordable Care Act (arguably as outspoken as any — he really hates it).
