‘Controversy’ response

Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Steve Kern (Commentary, “Counterpoint: Scrutinizing science,” April 13, Gazette) could not have provided a better example of why “teach the controversy” and “valid” criticisms of evolution have no legitimate place in science classrooms.

Black Friday, OKC-style

Let’s talk shop.

I'm going to be honest with you: Black Friday freaks me out. A lot.

The absolute last thing I want to do after OD-ing on turkey is get up early and shove through hoards of coupon clippers (no offense to those who clip ’n’ save). 

Also, most BF offers come from corporate retailers, and honestly, I'd rather a more personal (read: local) product.

If you have the urge to shop but not battle jam-packed malls fraught with strollers, stick fingers and endless lines, then I've got a treat for you.

This year, 16th Street in the Plaza District offers local lovers an option. Get 20 percent off and stimulate your home economy!

Shop art at DNA, peruse vintage at Bad Granny's or pick up some handmade goods from Collected Thread, just to name a few of the great shops. Make sure and take a break for lunch at Saints and a glass of wine at the new Urban Wineworks. And voilà! You've got a stress-free, local day.

Refuse to go out but want to keep it in OK? Head on over to Etsy. Specifically those e-shops run by locals!

Make sure you pop by OU grad and local sweetie Marek Ferguson's shop for thoughtful and OK-themed treasures.

Love Oklahoma? I'll believe it when I see the pillow on your couch.
