Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
In May, 2013 the Oklahoma Legislature passed House Bill 2226. This new law told females under age 17 that they must have a doctor’s prescription for getting over-the-counter emergency contraception (called Plan B or the morning after pill).

Letters to the Editor

Phil Bacharach
I appreciate that Chicken-Fried News is supposed to be irreverent and clever, but it should at least remain accurate. Unfortunately, the Feb. 19 brief, “Money to spend,” (Oklahoma Gazette) isn’t particularly irreverent or clever, and it’s not accurate.

LETTERS


Letters to the Editor

Nathaniel Batchelder
Americans are against the next war. Ongoing negotiations with Iran could lead to normalized relations, even a major trading partner with the U.S. Iran would import U.S. beef and grains, benefiting Oklahoma producers. U.S. firms serving the petroleum and other industries are eager to open offices in Iran and become trading partners. Releasing Iran’s oil production would lower the world oil price, giving Americans relief at the gas pumps.

Our federal tax dollars wasted?


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
Vital information could be provided on billboards at one or more of the entrances to Oklahoma. These billboards could say, “Welcome to Oklahoma, where Gov. Mary Fallin is denying Medicaid to 131,000 Oklahomans.”

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.

Testing doesn’t work


Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
H.L. Menken once wrote that “for every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple and wrong.” This is most certainly the case with the Reading Sufficiency Act that mandates retention in the third grade for students scoring an unsatisfactory on the reading test.

We need real healthcare


Letters to the Editor

Michael McCarthy (Commentary, Letters, March 25, Oklahoma Gazette) shows no knowledge of how the health insurance industry has performed in the past.

Music future is bright


John D. Carlson
The first time that I encountered the genius of John Fullbright was via a radio program. The show is produced by the owner of The Blue Door, and it shares its name with the title of Joshua Boydston’s excellent cover story on the artist (“For the sake of the song”; May 7, 2014; Oklahoma Gazette).
