Apparently, fear and the need to be superhuman is alive and well in Hollywood. Notice how many movies of superheroes have come out recently. In 1970-80, only four superhero movies were released, compared to 115 released since 2001.

What’s wrong with Christmas?


Commentary

Brady Henderson
There was a time in America when Christmas was illegal. In colonial New England, the opening salvo of the socalled “War on Christmas” came not from atheists, Jews or civil libertarians but from the same Puritan Christian pilgrims who gave America Thanksgiving.

I am always in awe (and laugh a little inside) when I see/read/hear someone who makes such obvious hypocritical statements either by mistake or on purpose.

Issues, not divorce records


Commentary

Kurt Hochenauer
Can Oklahoma City become more walkable, provide more police and fire protection and improve its public transportation systems? These are just some of the basic issues that should be addressed in the current mayoral campaign between Shadid and current Mayor Mick Cornett between now and the March 4 election.

In reform, real focus on needs on students


Commentary

Gene Perry
Oklahoma’s education debate spends a lot of time on a few familiar subjects: education funding vs. tax cuts, vouchers and charters vs. traditional public schools and high-stakes testing vs. letting teachers teach.

Also: Don’t lock up drug offenders


Letters to the Editor

Christopher Mock
In his Nov. 27 Oklahoma Gazette letter to the editor, Doug Rixmann makes the absurdly broad statement that “socialists are not happy people.”

Fracking: Good or bad? Is it that easy?


Commentary

Cal Hobson
Fracking is the injection of huge amounts of water, sand and chemicals into oil and natural gas-producing rock formations far below the surface. Horizontal drilling is the opposite of vertical in that the drill pipe bends at some point “down hole” and, thus, can penetrate multiple producing “plays.”

What are Oklahoma progressives to do?


Commentary

Kurt Hochenauer
Any particular political scene can change rapidly, but it’s fair to argue that Oklahoma Democrats are facing another dismal election year in 2014, especially in statewide offices.

Letters to the Editor

Doug Rixmann
My son came home with a project from school about whether we should have a “cradle-to-grave” system or not. He was the only one choosing to argue against it — the only one.

School values don’t fit into a single score


Commentary

John Thompson
It is no surprise that the release of this year’s Oklahoma A-F school report cards again has been a fiasco.

So Oklahoma House Representative Dan Fisher has a problem with OKC Theatre Company’s production of The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told (Performing Arts, “Questionably Fabulous,” Nov. 13, Oklahoma Gazette)? Or is it Senior Pastor Dan Fisher?

Women need help, not prison


Commentary

Kristin Davis
It is no secret that Oklahoma not only incarcerates women at the nation’s highest rate per capita but does so at a rate nearly twice the national average. The “why” behind the statistic is also no secret, although at first glance, it may seem difficult to pin down.
