If Chicken-Fried News were to hazard a guess as to the least popular legislator at the state Capitol, our money would be on state Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City. The guy has been a consistent thorn in the side — or perhaps a fleshier body part — of House speakers, and the current one, Lawton Republican T.W. Shannon, is no exception.

Not our war


Letters to the Editor

Rep. Paul Wesselhoft and Nathaniel Batchelder
At a state Capitol rally, four speakers on the left and four speakers on the right addressed 200 participants gathered in near 100-degree heat. The message was, “President Obama must hear from all of us that Syria is a powder-keg that the U.S. must not become militarily embroiled in. Syria is not our war.”

Lock your doors and batten down the hatches, Oklahoma. A ruling by a federal judge might just make the state more susceptible to terrorism.
