Better off with ‘Don't ask, don't tell’ repeal?


Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
Are America’s gay and lesbian service members better off with DADT now on the way to the trash can of prejudice? Are gays and lesbians in civilian life better off without DADT on the books?

Just Joshin’

No joke: One of regional rap’s brightest stars is a white kid from suburban Tulsa, fresh out of college. Meet Josh Sallee.


Music

Joshua Boydston
Josh Sallee is a 2010 graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma, facing the same frightening job market as fellow grads across the country. Luckily, he doesn’t have to worry about it — at least for now — because he’s got another gig lined up that’s been serving him pretty well.

Pie chart

Ready for a slice? Pies are poised to become the breakout dessert of 2011.


Food and Drink Features

Malena Lott
They don’t call it “as American as apple pie” for nothing. Simple, cheap and quick have always been hallmarks of patriotic popularity (hot dogs and hamburgers, anyone?), and that goes double when it’s also piping hot and delicious. And popular.

Gun violence is society's cancer


Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
Grant “Jake” Goss (Letters, “Councilman misfires with gun comment,” Feb. 16, Gazette) makes an excellent point in his defense of gun ownership when he compares the efforts at gun control with efforts to criminalize drugs.

Weapon of mass discussion


Letters to the Editor

Karen Webb
Obviously, Keith Kelley (Letters, “‘Gunhating zealots’ are perpetuating backward thought,” Feb. 9, Oklahoma Gazette) and Bryan Scott (“Who’s paranoid?,” Feb. 2) think it is illegal for Oklahomans to leave the state, and they are oblivious to the fact that Oklahoma law does not cover the entire United States.
