Soak the rich


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
I got a good chuckle at Mike Brake frantically waving the crying towel for rich Americans (Letters, “Batchelder logic,” Sept. 14, Gazette). What is the relevance that the top 1 percent pay 40 percent of income taxes given that they constitute just half of all federal revenues?

Shaping a better city


Commentary

Blair Humphreys
We had the opportunity to discuss the issue of “sprawl” with more than 600 citizens who gathered last month at a town hall meeting in Oklahoma City. The meeting included presentations from Councilman Ed Shadid, City Manager Jim Couch and the director of almost every city department.

Max on Mummers, mack


Letters to the Editor

Max Weitzenhoffer
I used to perform at the Mummers Theater with Mack Scism before it was built. Mack, the longtime Mummers managing director, had a vision. He worked out of a garage. It was an in-the-round situation in a big garage downtown, and it was a very good operation.

Oral argument


Letters to the Editor

Frank Riddick
Randy Potts’ hermeneutic (Life, Greg Horton, “Walk this way,” Sept. 21, Gazette) would have to admit that murder has no conflict with Christianity.

Working toward walkability


Commentary

Randy Entz

No matter what health statistic is considered, Oklahoma City generally does not fare very well. It has higher rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease than most of its peer cities. No doubt some of that can be attributed to personal decisions, but some of it is due to our built environment. We have built a city that, in most areas, makes travel by walking and cycling more difficult than driving a vehicle.

Truth and taxes


Letters to the Editor

B. Ellis
I recently read D.W. Tiffee’s letter (“Soak the rich,” Sept. 28, Gazette) responding to Mike Brake’s Sept. 14 letter (“Batchelder logic”) on taxing the “rich.”

'Crank' that


Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
They say people in glass houses should not throw rocks. In his letter “Mistaken environmentalists” (Sept. 14, Gazette), Mickey McVay seems to suggest that those who say that humans might have contributed to climate change are ignorant idiots.
