From our Opinion columnist, George Lang -- Many Oklahomans still do not take COVID-19 seriously. Gov. Kevin Stitt is a major reason for that.
As the nation looked to lawmakers to find a way through the COVID-19 health crisis, Oklahoma's U.S. Senators James Lankford and Jim Inhofe whined.
The brutal truth is that both Lankford and Inhofe constituted 25 percent of the “no” votes on the COVID-19 response bill, which was approved 90-8.
Gov. Kevin Stitt’s unforced error of posting his family enjoying a local food court during a pandemic was not just embarrassing and grossly irresponsible.
People seeking truth should look to reliable media and medical science. The snake oil will not cure COVID-19 and the charlatans do not care about your fate.
Senator Jim Inhofe can no longer stay in the shadows and avoid all voters with progressive opponent Abby Broyles running against him.
Epic Charter Schools and others that receive state taxpayer dollars should operate by the same accountability standards as traditional public schools.
Lankford avoids events in places where his opinions are likely to be challenged. When he does schedule such meetings, it is with little prior public notice.
Republicans at the national level want Oklahoma City’s progressive residents to accept their fate as outnumbered, outgunned voters in a bright red state.
In the coming weeks, Oklahoma City residents should volunteer to shape how the fourth Metropolitan Area Project Plan (MAPS 4) comes into being.
