In your Face



You talk, we listen! Here's what readers said on some of last week's Oklahoma Gazette stories, via unedited comments left on our Facebook page at

On State Question 751, on making English the official state language:
""Can we stop wasting our time making things difficult for people who are seen as complete aliens by some (gays, immigrants, etc.)?! How about instead of wasting time on such petty things as a state, we start IMPROVING things around here." "Erika Salinas

""Which English? Americanized English? Olde English? Where do dialects fit in here? I am a conservative and watching this kind of stuff just blows my mind. We cannot fix the state's budget or its bloated bureaucracy but the legislature has time to do this kind of crap. We have never had an official language as a country and we don't need one now. Ridiculous.""Brad Duren

""I agree with trying to fix existing problems, not creating new ones. But I guess all legislatures are good at tap dancing around any problem." "Brenda Spangler

""Here's a novel idea. Why doesn't the legislature focus on something important such as much needed road improvements, education and creating more jobs instead of wasting their time on declaring English the official language. They obviously have way too much time on their hands." "Bobby Jones

On our online interview with Smashing Pumpkins head honcho Billy Corgan:
""massive sigh" "Chad Mock

""Zzzzzz." "Jerry Church

On "The Exorcist" returning to local movie screens for one night only:
""Got my ticket :)" "Kristy Kauffman

""That crucifix sccene still ooks me out." "Jeff Austin

""Give me a break...." "Denise Rusmisel Caskey Johnson

""Head-Spinnin & Pukin' Green-Pea soup. Now that's entertainment! :-D" "Stephen Keith Bussell
