Bad officiating means never having to say you’re sorry


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma State fans could not have known that the officiating crew responsible for the blown call in the Sept. 30 OSU-Texas game was auditioning to be NFL replacement refs. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, the bad call in the end zone came two days too late to secure an NFL gig — but it clearly robbed the Pokes of a much-deserved victory.

A tax cut to die for


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
Gov. Mary Fallin’s $106 million-a-year tax cut proposal effectively precludes Oklahoma from spending a net $50 million annually to insure 200,000 Oklahomans under Obamacare, a coldblooded death sentence for thousands who will suffer and die from treatable medical conditions. The pro-life crowd’s road to prosperity is paved with human bones.

Amanda Earhart — Tell Me What You Want


Pop

Alyssa Grimley
Amanda Earhart’s sound is hard to categorize. Think today’s pop, but with fewer thump-thump club beats and synthesizers, traded for more undoctored vocals and guitar. Throw in a dash of country twang and a sprinkling of piano and violin, and that’s a start.
