The Haunting of Helena

Lotsa teeth, no bite.


Horror

Rod Lott
One cannot discuss The Haunting of Helena without bringing 2003's Darkness Falls into the conversation. Both horror movies are about an über-evil Tooth Fairy (really a malevolent spirit of a female killed ages ago), and Helena's heroine looks not unlike the earlier film's Emma Caulfield. I'd go so far as to call this one an unofficial remake, with the setting transplanted to Italy.

Soul Williams — Love, Soul: The Musical Letters Collective, Part 1


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to see why many secular types consider Christian music a joke. Badly produced, pre-programmed Casio backbeats and plastic saxophones providing the soundtrack to a holier-than-thou message inspires snickers and winces from even those least jaded. OKC’s Soul Williams aims to and succeeds in knocking some sense into that rightfully stereotyped scene.

Minimum wage isn’t a “market wage”


Bob Waldrop
Labor Commissioner Mark Costello’s argument against the minimum wage (Commentary, "OKC benefits from market cages,” March 26, Oklahoma Gazette) rests on a false premise. We do not have a free market for labor. The wages of low income workers are not “market wages.” Our economy is tightly regulated to favor capital over labor and to suppress wages.

Cruel and unusual?


Letters to the Editor

David Slane
Recently, an Oklahoma County district judge ruled the secrecy element of the state’s lethal injection death penalty process was unconstitutional. According to the law, the exact components of the three-drug cocktail used to execute death row inmates are supposed to be confidential. The secrecy has extended to the drug supplier as well as the name of the executioner.

Hold elected officials accountable


Commentary

Adam Soltani
According to the website for the United States Senate, “Upon taking office, senators-elect must swear or affirm that they will ‘support and defend the Constitution.’” Our elected officials are not only voted upon by people within our state to represent Oklahoma but are also expected to protect and defend rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
