‘Education as a common good’


Commentary

Jason Reese
The good news: I smile every time I drive past the charter school near my house on the way to drop off my eldest child at our parochial school. The bad news: Not everyone in our state, or even our city, has the ability to choose either of those options. That is why I want to insist that our state and local governments move further and faster in expanding school choice.

Harumph, harumph, harumph


CFN

Gazette staff
 Let the harumphing begin! Oklahoma's Republican leaders are weighing in on the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling today upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. And — prepare to be shocked — they're not happy about it.

Playing snow day roulette


Letters to the Editor

Todd Fagin
Many a student has undoubtedly played a game of “snow day roulette” in which the student opts to postpone completing homework under the hope inclement weather will result in a school closing. If the forecast is wrong or the school otherwise remains open, the student is often in quite a predicament.

Blue moon


CFN

Gazette staff

In the Downwardly-Spiraling- Individual-Spirals-Downward department, Oklahoma City attorney Lewis B. Moon has been disbarred for recent actions ranging from threatening others to posing as a federal agent. The state Supreme Court called Moon “an embarrassment to the legal profession” in its Jan. 22 order.

Marriage equality is up for grabs


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
“Equal Justice Under Law” is engraved on the front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. To me, the phrase — when applied to marriage — means “marriage equality,” both same-sex marriage and heterosexual marriage.

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. He filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court last week after the state court struck down a 2010 law requiring women seeking an abortion to first undergo an ultrasound and hear a detailed explanation of the procedure.

Judging the judges


CFN

Gazette staff
They say revenge is a dish best served cold. But try telling that to Oklahoma’s supporters of tort reform. That crowd wants its retribution piping-hot and fresh from the microwave. At least that’s how it looked after the state Supreme Court ruled June 4 that 2009’s landmark tort-reform law was unconstitutional.

Common sense needed on the court


Commentary

Fred Morgan

Recently, the Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down lawsuit reform legislation passed by a bipartisan Legislature and signed by Democrat Gov. Brad Henry. In doing so, seven of the nine justices relied upon an obscure procedural objection rather than the substantive merits of the bill.
