Letter to the editor: Engle is incorrect about Gary Richardson


As a Republican and a supporter of Gary Richardson for Governor now as well in 2002, I read with great interest the article in the August 3, 2017 edition of the Tulsa Beacon, specifically as to what author, Richard Engle, who is an active supporter of Todd Lamb, had to say about Richardson’s candidacy for […]

Letter to the editor: Jenner is not a woman


Bruce Jenner is a 67-year-old, 6-2 man and a former (1976) Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete.  But Bruce Jenner announced in April 2015 that he is a transwoman.

Letter to the editor: Trump polls are wrong


When I see the Trump polls posted on the evening news I recognize some bias. Therefore, I started my own polling. I asked two men who shop at Bass Pro Shop if they liked Trump and received two yes votes.  I overheard two people at church express  their opinion of gun control – you got […]

In London there is a little 11-month-old baby named Charlie Gard fighting to live . . . but the Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie is being treated, wants to pull the plug on Charlie’s life-support system and let little Charlie die. Sadly, the British government’s single-payer healthcare system bureaucracy supports the hospital’s decision to […]

They do not have everyone (from the elevator operator on up) vote for the new CEO. Corporations choose a hiring committee which can take the time for a careful […]

Letter to the editor: Bribery case


I have not only followed bribery cases at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission for more than 20 years, I have also assisted law enforcement investigations.  On November 3, 2015, I tried to intervene in the $16 billion AT&T bribery refund case, but AT&T claimed my attorney, Jerry Fent, did not follow proper procedure.  Later I watched […]

Oregon’s Department of Motor […]

Letter to the editor: Climate: usual suspects?


The current issue of the National Geographic has some interesting reading on the melting of the Antarctic ice. Regardless of the cause, it is melting by the cubic mile. In all the generations we have known about Antarctic ice, it is melting way faster than ever. The Geographic predicts that in seventy years, the melting […]
