How appealing


CFN

Gazette staff
State Attorney General Scott Pruitt doesn’t like taking “no” for an answer, at least not when it’s coming from the state Supreme Court striking down abortion restrictions.

Enforcing the law


CFN

Gazette staff
Kids will be kids, as they say, but even the most adorable youngsters eventually need to learn how to eat with utensils and function without pooping themselves. That seems to be the subtext behind the Obama administration’s admonition to Oklahoma regarding the notion that somehow the redder-than-red state won’t have to abide by that mean ol’ Affordable Care Act.

Mama's getting punchy


CFN
