Seeing ‘blue states’


Letters to the Editor

Bryan Scott
I will accept the money amounts Zoeller put forth as accurate or close enough. However, just adding total debt and assigning it to a year, a president or a political party does not give a true picture of who really spends our money. The federal government raises, spends and borrows money like most of its citizens.

Time-out for towers


Commentary

Lee Peoples
Just look up and you’ll notice the proliferation of cellphone towers around Oklahoma City. Many of these towers reach heights of 125 feet or taller. AT&T, only one of many wireless providers, is planning at least 60 applications for new towers or antennas this year alone. A temporary moratorium on new cellphone towers, combined with an examination of the applicable zoning rules, is in order.

Soak the rich


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
I got a good chuckle at Mike Brake frantically waving the crying towel for rich Americans (Letters, “Batchelder logic,” Sept. 14, Gazette). What is the relevance that the top 1 percent pay 40 percent of income taxes given that they constitute just half of all federal revenues?

These Amazing Shadows

What movie love lurks in the heart of man? ‘Shadows’ knows.


Documentary

Rod Lott
At the start of the documentary “These Amazing Shadows,” various film lovers talk about the magic of going to the movies, using phrases like “window to the world” and “religious experience.” But the way things go at the multiplexes these days — texters, talkers, popcorn-munchers — when’s the last time you felt that sense of awe?

An embarrassment of a senator


Commentary

Robin Meyers
Is it any wonder that Oklahoma students rank near the bottom of the country in math and science scores? Consider U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, who teaches them by example that if someone pays you enough money, you too can ignore the evidence and act like a fool.
