OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Blues and barbecue go together like wine and cheese, Simon & Garfunkel and legs and eggs — which is to say, each is good on their own, but they’re even better when paired with one another. Bricktown Blues and BBQ Festival features some of the finest local offerings in each of these departments, which you can see/hear/taste for yourself 4 p.m.- midnight Friday and 2 p.m.-midnight Saturday on the corner of Sheridan and Oklahoma avenues. Admission is free. Call 236-4143 or visit

22 Jump Street shouldn’t be as funny as it is. It is a sequel of a movie based on a defunct television series, after all, which already renders it suspect as a cash-grab. Moreover, the filmmakers even include winking references to its sequelness, which makes the whole thing even more suspect for playing off the cash-grab as a cynical joke.

Who’s to blame?

Letters to the Editor

Mickey McVay
Donald Smith (Commentary, Letters, “No war,” July 16, Oklahoma Gazette) wishes to remind those of us with “short memories” that the United States sent troops into Iraq at the order of George W. Bush. I wish to refresh his memory and ask him if he remembers 9/11.
