The Oklahoma Gazette’s Jan. 12 “Chicken-Fried News” column, “The ol’ shell game?” — based on a Reuters story — needs the benefit of a few key facts.

Holy crap, Batman!

The caped crusader swoops in for a live show in October.

In the late ’70s, I once saw Batman and Robin appear at some circus at The Myriad. It was just two nobodies in costume as part of the show, but I was a first grader and, therefore, didn’t care. I was such a Batman nut back then that when one day, when our family sheepdog was about to die, I chose to watch that afternoon’s rerun of the Adam West TV show instead of saying goodbye.

Yes, I’m heartless. This has not changed.

Now I have a heartless first grader of my own, and sure enough, he flipped when I told him that the Batman Live worldwide arena tour is coming to town. More specifically, to Chesapeake Energy Arena for eight performances, Oct. 10-14. I mean, take a look:

It’s like a mix of Cirque du Soleil, the Joel Schumacher movies and hallucinogens.

Tickets are already on sale by calling 800-745-3000. —Rod Lott

It’s been a rough few months for hydraulic fracturing.

Nonprofits owe much to Chesapeake


Deborah Mcauliffe Senner
As most of Oklahoma’s nonprofit organizations would agree, the landscape of our state’s charitable community would be much different without the generous support of our corporate donors. Allied Arts’ visionary donors — Chesapeake Energy, the Chickasaw Nation and Devon Energy — along with all our corporate partners, are committed to investing in the enhancement of the communities in which their employees live and work, and we are grateful beneficiaries.

As the well turns


Gazette staff
Whether Chesapeake Energy Corp. shareholders are ready to start singing “It’s a New Day” or “Won’t Get Fooled Again” (meet the new boss / same as the old boss), remains to be seen now that the company has named a new board chairman and four new board members.

This week at the ’Peake


Gazette staff
In the immortal words of Roseanne Roseannadanna (a onetime Saturday Night Live character by Gilda Radner, for you Millennials and younger), it’s always something. Last week’s hullaballoo surrounding Chesapeake Energy involved taxes, G-men, a Seattle newspaper’s provocative photo selection, and a compressed natural gas filling station controversy.

Holding our biased breath


Robin Meyers
Let’s be perfectly honest: When it comes to Chesapeake’s troubles, nobody in Oklahoma City can be expected to be objective. We all have been on the receiving end of too many benefits, from Classen Curve to Whole Foods to the arena’s namesake, not to mention some of the best Christmas lights in the known universe.
