‘Mistaken environmentalists’


Letters to the Editor

Mickey McVay
James Stovall (Letters, “Unprecedented crisis,” Aug. 3, Gazette) informs us that warm air “holds more water vapor than cold air.” Golly gee, now that would be real news, except that it is a long-known fact that steam is an excellent way to retain and transport water vapor and heat.

Eateries attacked


Letters to the Editor

Jim Hopper
Recently, there has been extensive coverage about two lawsuits filed against more than 800 restaurants for alleged miscalculation of the gross receipts tax and sales tax on mixed beverages, strong beer and wine (News, Greg Horton, “Double trouble,” Aug. 24, Oklahoma Gazette).

Alley oops


Letters to the Editor

John W. Hilmes
Let me see if I understand this (News, Clifton Adcock, “Walk the line,” Aug. 31, Gazette): MAPS 3 park subcommittee member Michelle Martin-Coyne, the wife of The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, wants to walk from Flaming Lips Alley to the proposed (Mick Cornett/ Larry Nichols park) Core to Shore park and the new convention center is in her way?

Not dead yet


Letters to the Editor

Kristi Hendricks
As an educated young woman who works at a library and in media, I wanted to comment on the Rev. Steve Kern’s letter to the Sept. 7 issue of Oklahoma Gazette in which Kern said, quite plainly, that “evolution is dead.” I found this to be condescending to the scientists, professors and librarians (many of whom I know) who either teach or are familiar with the theory of evolution.

‘Shut up or get out!’


Letters to the Editor

Rob Bennett
One week it is a statement of proof about dinosaurs living with humans; the next week is one or more replies disputing this.

Inexplicable nonsense


Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
On a Monday morning several years ago, I reported to work at Noble Junior High School to be greeted by one of my students who informed me that people and dinosaurs had actually lived at the same time.

'Conspiracy theory'


Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
When the original Obama birth certificate was released, those familiar with crank intellectualism knew what would happen: The new evidence would be made to “fit” a preposterous conspiracy theory. No matter what is found, a crank will make it “fit.”

Challenge accepted


Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
I’m delighted to accept Steve Kern’s challenge (Letters, “Fuel for fossil debate,” July 27, Gazette), especially as I can do it with his own words. He implies his Bible is a work of science, and it has convinced him that dinosaurs and men lived at the same time. If his source material is false, then any opinions based thereon are also false.

‘Evolution is dead'


Letters to the Editor

Steve Kern
I want to make a pronouncement in response to the growing number of responders to my letters. When I was a kid in the 1950s growing up in Scottsdale, Ariz., when it was just a hole-in-the-wall, my dad would wring the neck of a chicken, pluck it and that would be our lunch after church on Sunday.

Puzzling lack of sense


Letters to the Editor

Daniel Shywaoub
One more semi-amusing story to go with the other letters about bicyclists:

Welfare recipients denied work ‘blessing’


Letters to the Editor

K.A. Straughn
Brandon Wertz (Letters, “‘Christian’ nation ‘going to hell,’” July 27, Gazette) is right that government should not subsidize the wealthy. However, he is off base to use half of the parable of the sheep and the goats (Matthew 25:41-46) to defend government welfare spending and claim, “If this is a ‘Christian’ nation, we’re surely going to hell” because of “those fighting to keep (government) services from the poor.”

‘Laugh and cry’


Letters to the Editor

Trevor Bruner
I am proud to be from Oklahoma, but the Reclaiming America for Christ event in Moore is an embarrassment for this state. The ignorance displayed in the article (News, Clifton Adcock, “Reclamation project,” Aug. 10, Gazette) only serves to reinforce the cultural backwardness of some of our residents and elected leaders.
