A response to Wesselhoft


Letters to the Editor

Chris Reiger
Rep. Paul Wesselhöft’s letter (“Rep. Paul Wesselhöft questions Islamophobia,” Oct. 5, Gazette) struck me as very ironic. His attempt to defend himself against charges of being Islamophobic and ill-informed demonstrated that he is both.

Talking turkey


Letters to the Editor

Owen Pelroy
While President Obama is pardoning two turkeys for Thanksgiving, every one of us has that same presidential power by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance that spares a turkey’s life.

Stickin' with the union


Letters to the Editor

Tom Elmore
The back-alley freight transfer line and ramp discussed in “Spur of the moment” (News, Clifton Adcock, Nov 2, Oklahoma Gazette) compares to OKC Union Station’s lamented, 12-track-wide, 8-block-long rail plant and its direct, metro and statewide rail connections only insofar as an outhouse might be compared to the White House.

‘Let them eat cake'


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee

Crimes of exploitation


Commentary

Deirdre Flynn

Rest, ye merry caregivers


Letters to the Editor

Joanette Clipson
The holidays are a natural time to enjoy family and get-togethers — sharing festive meals, exchanging gifts and celebrating traditions. But for the 65 million Americans taking care of someone with a life-limiting illness, finding holiday cheer can be difficult.

Shock and schadenfreude


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
I’m not sure which emotion best conveys my feelings with regard to Tom Furlong’s Nov. 16 response (“A shot in the dark,” Oklahoma Gazette) to James Cooper’s story, “From closet to community,” (Nov. 2 and 9, Gazette).

The 99 percent


Commentary

Precarious percentages


Letters to the Editor

Bill Burton
In response to professor Kurt Hochenauer’s commentary (“The 99 percent,” Dec. 14, Oklahoma Gazette), he misrepresents the facts.

An unforced life


Letters to the Editor

Clinton Wiles
Rev. Kern (Letters, Dec. 7, Gazette) holds that a legal requirement to treat all citizens as equals, with comparable opportunities to live, work, love, pass on property and share problems forces him to embrace the lifestyle of those of whom he disapproves.
