The last laugh


Letters to the Editor

Jon Parker
I read David Hull’s tirade on President Obama’s economic record (Letters, “Demonizing rich people, May 1, Oklahoma Gazette) on Friday, May 3. That was the day it was announced that we had added 165,000 jobs in April, and the February and March numbers were revised upward by 114,000 jobs, bringing unemployment down to 7.5 percent. It was also the day the Dow and S&P 500 closed at all-time highs.

Still stealing land


Letters to the Editor

M.B. Stephenson
The myth surrounding the construction of the KXL Pipeline is that it will further fuel us in Oklahoma by providing energy independence and jobs.

Common sense about Common Core


Commentary

John Thompson
Being an educator has become like drinking water from a fire hose. Oklahoma City administrators and teachers barely have the time, money or know-how to tackle challenges that must be met, such as improving early childhood education, ensuring that students read for comprehension by third grade and evaluating teachers with rigorous new observations.

Re-gifting a time capsule


Letters to the Editor

Danielle Fleetwood
I was reading the article about the “Century Chest” (Life, Rachael Cervenka, “It’s about time,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette), and I think instead of filling in the hole, the church should take pictures of what was in the first time capsule and make another.

The O’Reilly prophecy


Letters to the Editor

Thomas L. Furlong
There’s a major storm coming, the effects of which I can only imagine. Bill O’Reilly of The O’Reilly Factor has authored a book, soon to be released, dealing with the execution of Jesus Christ.

Questioning Hobby Lobby


Letters to the Editor

Dennis Weigand
In all the back and forth about Hobby Lobby and the Affordable Care Act (News, Peter Wright, ”Crossing Obamacare,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette), there is one important question that I have not seen addressed: Is employment at Hobby Lobby conditional on agreement with the religious views of the owners?

Connecting the dots


Commentary

Joe Siano
Young students do connect-the-dot worksheets to learn numbers. Students draw lines from a dot to another dot in numerical order and a true picture is revealed. When they don’t, there is no picture, or it’s distorted.

Miracle on 23rd Street: a tax cut


Commentary

Cal Hobson
With the exception of that most beloved Republican activity — the buying, selling, exchanging, concealing, cleaning, carrying, showing, stroking and shooting of guns — members of the party once led by Lincoln are now best known for their genetically driven obsession: cutting taxes anytime, anywhere, any size, for any reason or excuse.

Bashing coal


Letters to the Editor

Doug Rixmann
Very interesting commentary by the local chapter of the Sierra Club on coal (Whitney Pearson, “OG&E must move past coal”) in the April 10 Oklahoma Gazette. It's no secret that this group has openly said it wants to shut down the coal industry. Let’s examine the Sierra Club's record on their ability to be objective on said issue, shall we?

Get off of coal


Letters to the Editor

Casey Holcomb
Whitney Pearson’s April 10 commentary (”OG&E must move past coal,” Oklahoma Gazette) did an excellent job illustrating how our state stands to gain by getting off coal and leading the U.S. in making a rapid transition to clean and renewable energy.
