Tom Haverford, played by Aziz Ansari on TV’s Parks and Recreation, was onto something with his catchphrase, “Treat yo’self!”

The Loneliest Planet

Take a hike.


Rod Lott
It’s curious that the Internet Movie Database (among other sources) has classified The Loneliest Planet as a “thriller,” since the film forgoes not just all that genre’s trappings, but narrative altogether.

Nic of time

You may have to stand in a long line, but these perfect patties are worth the wait.

Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Nic's Grill
1201 N. Pennsylvania

What works:
The food. Seriously. It’s uniformly good.
What needs work:
Specials ought to last a little longer than just before noon.
Nic’s is cash only. If you go without cash, don't go without cash.

Opposites attract


Gazette staff
The Odd Couple’s Felix Unger and Oscar Madison didn’t have anything on President Barack Obama and U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn of Muskogee. The Democratic commander-in-chief and the Republican lawmaker have nearly nothing in common politically, but the two have been friends since they were freshmen senators in 2004.
