Poor figures, poor logic


Letters to the Editor

Thomas L. Furlong
“Figures lie and liars figure” couldn’t be more true than the use of numbers in “The Gap” (Rachel Curtis, April 3, Oklahoma Gazette), which would have us believe there’s a widening gulf between the haves and the have-nots. This is more agenda-driven, left-wing class-warfare crap.

Willful ignorance of science


Letters to the Editor

Jordan Jay
Rev. Kern, your March 13 letter, “What evolutionists fear” (Oklahoma Gazette), betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of evolutionary theory. Spontaneous generation was an incorrect scientific hypothesis that Louis Pasteur did, indeed, disprove. However, to equate spontaneous generation and the current definition of abiogenesis is disingenuous. Spontaneous generation referred to the idea that individual present-day organisms could arise from nonliving matter, such as maggots seeming to arise from rotten meat out of thin air.

Marriage equality is up for grabs


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
“Equal Justice Under Law” is engraved on the front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. To me, the phrase — when applied to marriage — means “marriage equality,” both same-sex marriage and heterosexual marriage.

Recent research has clarified how emergency contraceptives, or ECs, work.

Real must-see TV


Letters to the Editor

Susan K. Schmidt
We all can agree there is too much violence in the U.S. Each of us is damaged by the constant violence we witness, which includes steady exposure to violence on television. How can we get the writers, directors and actors to focus on more uplifting fare in place of the steady diet of murders while still protecting our freedom of speech?

As you’ve heard, Aubrey McClendon is stepping down as CEO of Chesapeake Energy. Aubrey and his former partner, Tom Ward (who now heads SandRidge Energy), own KSBI Channel 52.

Wrong again


Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Rev. Steve Kern’s letter to the editor ("What evolutionists fear,” March 13, Oklahoma Gazette) projects, yet again, his willful ignorance of science. His characterizations of evolutionary science are flat wrong

Reaping what you gamble


Letters to the Editor

Mike Brake
Losing bet” (News, C.G. Niebank, March 13, Oklahoma Gazette), which laments the presence of 100,000 gambling addicts in Oklahoma and the lack of taxpayer dollars to treat them, is a perfect example of an old conservative truth: Boneheaded actions by government often have costly unintended consequences.

Right-thinking governors


Letters to the Editor

Jo Davis
Ohio’s Republican governor, John Kasich, recently surprised most political pundits by changing his mind about expanding Medicaid. “I, as all of you know, am not a supporter of Obamacare,” Kasich explained at a press conference. “But I think this makes great sense for the state of Ohio.”

What evolutionists fear


Letters to the Editor

Steve Kern
Regarding the Feb. 6 letter to the editor by Douglas Mock, Joseph Thai and Tom Boyd (“Same ol’, same ol’”): It’s the same ol’, same ol’ strategy by closed-minded, evolution-Kool-Aid-drinking scientists in our universities who keep out an ever-watchful eye to protect their weak theory from any scrutiny.

Balanced journalism


Letters to the Editor

Lawrence Curtis
Congratulations for publishing Dr. Dana Stone’s timely and splendidly written “The truth of emergency contraception” (Commentary, Feb. 20, Oklahoma Gazette). Her rationale was validly bolstered by well-supported and cited facts. Her commentary was an effective, appropriate and much-needed contribution to a volatile and poorly understood subject — more accurately, a widely misunderstood and high-profile controversy of the day.

Water and wishful thinking


Letters to the Editor

Ron Ferrell
I want to thank Oklahoma Gazette for featuring three important stories, in back-to-back issues, about our looming water crisis. Western Oklahoma hasn’t had measurable rain in about three years. Farm ponds are dry. Foss Lake is in crisis. Clinton is in dire water straits, and the list grows.

Pot and panned


Letters to the Editor

Paul Walker
Mike Brake is too old to be writing about medicinal cannabinol use (Commentary, "Be cautious with a dopey idea," Feb. 13, Oklahoma Gazette).

Embracing early childhood education


Letters to the Editor

John Thompson
President Obama did not explicitly renounce his risky, first-term, test-driven policies that have caused so much harm to poor children of color in Oklahoma City and other districts, but he did the next best thing. His new priority is a researched-based call for high-quality early education.

Consistent religious beliefs


Letters to the Editor

Nancy Roche
Isn’t it ironic that Hobby Lobby is using religious beliefs as an excuse to not participate in the health care mandate, but it doesn’t hesitate to import all that garbage they sell us from China, where women are still strongly encouraged to have abortions?
