Dear
people, Enjoyed your Chicken-Fried News article titled “Weed control” (Dec. 29,
2010, Oklahoma Gazette).

The
myth of weed control at its core was perpetuated by racism with a healthy dose
of ignorance. The price of making paper, cups, diapers and disposable plastic
items is fueling the degradation of a sustainable consumer-oriented system.
Trees and oil are too valuable.

Hemp
is a job-producing, sustainable alternative to our current disposable
lifestyles. We have been blessed with abundant resources. It’s time to escape
the miasma of euphemisms used to perpetuate the lies!

I
didn’t make it past the first quaint story (“Cheeky citation”) in the
Chicken-Fried News section of the Dec. 22, 2010, issue of Oklahoma Gazette. The conservative,
fetus-protecting, reraping (via vaginal ultrasound) state of Oklahoma was just
thrilled to have the flop crime film “The Killer Inside Me” filmed in Guthrie.
No surprise there: Conservatives have the dirtiest Web pages and so forth.

Bur
then, for CFN to carry on about Jessica Alba’s asswhipping by Casey Affleck in
this movie — I threw this publication in the trash where it belonged. The last
two paragraphs fairly dripped with saliva and I know not what. It belonged in
Hustler, not a progressive (I thought) publication like the Gazette.

With
the rate of domestic violence we have in this state, a lascivious article like
this, which celebrates violence against women, is just wrong. I don’t care how
hip you people are or think you are.
