The (not so awful) truth


CFN

Gazette staff
You know what’s fun? Debunking crazy conspiracy theories. Like, have you heard the one about the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stockpiling ammunition in order to keep them out of the hands of civilians? Because, you know, Obama is a secret communist who’s going to take all our guns away?

To pledge, or not to pledge


CFN

Gazette staff
Remember in school when you would stand up with your classmates and recite the Pledge of Allegiance each morning? And remember how, especially by high school, some who wanted to stay seated and abstain from the pledge didn’t get in trouble?

Reno Ave. Admission is $4-$7. Call 445-7080 or visit myriadgardens.com.

CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma’s own, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Tulsa) is the fifth most conservative lawmaker in the nation, according to a recent report from National Journal. Oh, and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Muskogee) didn’t even break the top 10. Sigh. He hit No. 13.

Capital kumbaya


CFN

Gazette staff
Who says it’s all vitriol and partisan backstabbing in Washington, D.C.? Well it is, but sometimes our elected leaders set their anathema for those in the opposite party aside and actually say nice things to each other, especially in a time of illness or loss.
