Don’t mind us, we’re just sneezing 14 times in a row.

CFN Quote of the Week


CFN

Gazette staff
“Oh, he’s a diva. I call him Sasha Fierce. On the court, he’s a fierce competitor. Off the court, he’s chilling in front of the mirror, making sure he got the right lip balm on.”

No more Mr. Nice Guy?


CFN

Gazette staff
Ever heard of an athlete having that “killer instinct?” As fans, we love it when our favorite team or player dominates the opposition and then stomps on their proverbial throats. (Just ask college football fans.) We want our faves to win, and it doesn’t matter how they do it.

'Do You Realize??' we have no rock song?


CFN

Gazette staff
It's rock ’n’ roll chaos in Oklahoma. The state no longer has an official rock song.

Let them eat cake, eventually


CFN

Gazette staff
Famed statistician (yes, that’s a real thing) Nate Silver, who correctly predicted the winner in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in last year’s presidential election, is at it again. In a March 26 post on his blog, FiveThirtyEight: Nate Silver’s Political Calculus, he posited that support for same-sex marriage is increasing steadily and that a majority of U.S. states will vote in favor of it as soon as 2016.

Gunning for freedom


CFN

Gazette staff
House Bill 1062 — you know, the one that pushed to arm teachers in Oklahoma public schools — will not be heard by the state Senate Education Committee this legislative session, despite the measure having been approved by House members.

Dog the lobbyist


CFN

Gazette staff
The Oklahoma Legislature has been lobbied by some pretty tough customers over the decades, but perhaps none tougher than Duane Lee Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Not-so-modest proposal


CFN

Gazette staff
Popping the question can be a daunting task for any would-be spouse, especially in the wake of unreasonably high expectations set by romantic comedies and those goofballs who propose on the Jumbotron at sporting events. But David Tester, a 28-year-old OKC videographer, was up to the challenge, and even went a tad further than your run-of-the-mill proposal via flash mob.

Tots entertainment


CFN

Gazette staff
If Terrence Malick’s movies are anything, they’re an absolute pleasure to look at. In such films as Badlands, The Thin Red Line and The Tree of Life, the acclaimed director, who was raised in northern Oklahoma, has demonstrated a gift for extracting beauty from the most unexpected places (i.e. cornfields, combat zones, um ... dinosaurs).

Hitting ‘send’


CFN

Gazette staff
It took nearly five months, scads of editorials and a fair amount of prodding from journalists (and if you’ve ever been prodded by a journalist, you know how painful that can be), but on March 29, Gov. Mary Fallin's office finally released those pesky emails involving her April 2011 about-face decision to forgo a $54 million federal grant for an Oklahoma health insurance exchange.

Quake questions


CFN

Gazette staff

If there’s one area in which Oklahoma excels at inclusiveness, it’s natural disaster. Tornadoes, blizzards, drought — hell, why not earthquakes, too? Bill Haley and His Comets didn’t have Oklahoma in mind when they recorded “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” but that ’50s hit certainly has applied to the Sooner State in recent years.

That’s some green bean!


CFN

Gazette staff
“Wow, what a deal!” wisecracked Jay Leno during a March 25 “Small Town News” segment on The Tonight Show. The object of The Chin’s snark? None other than a coupon from Oklahoma City’s Paseo Grill advertising “a fried green bean” with the purchase of two entrees.

Nothing to smile about


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahomans don’t like going to the dentist. We hate it so much that, according to the United Health Foundation, the state ranks dead last in the percentage of adults who visit one at least once a year.

We voted ... not


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma is a conservative state. Just how conservative? Well, so much so that a little more than half of the population was unwilling in 2012 to progress up from their couch and to their voter precincts.
