Letter to the editor: Farming rules


A draft rule issued by USDA aims to define what it means to be ‘actively engaged’ in farming. The proposed rule makes some important changes, but those improvements are immediately undermined by two new loopholes introduced in the rule.

Editorial: Why a taxpayer funded museum?


State Senate Pro Tem Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa, pushed for the state to fund the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture in Tulsa.

Editorial: Legal rights for chimpanzees?


Lawyers for the “Nonhuman Rights Project” have filed a lawsuit against The University of New York at Stony Brook on behalf of “Hercules” and “Leo” – two chimpanzees who are being “unlawfully detained.” What?

Let’s hope that that other states will follow the lead of Kansas and Oklahoma in banning dismemberment abortions.  And let’s hope the U.S. Congress will soon pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act, as the U.S. House is set to take it up. What exactly happens in a dismemberment abortion?  The following is sworn testiomony given […]
