Tulsa World a must
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
We all need the Tulsa World newspaper. I read it every day. Whenever I go on vacation or out of town, I always go by the downtown office and collect the issues I missed while I was away.
As a small child reared in north Tulsa, I often read the paper to my father, who was not proficient in reading.
Tulsa has a great daily paper. I continue to read it every day. When my schedule gets really busy, and I am unable to read the paper on certain days, I simply put it aside to read later in the week. about these remarkable people. I think these articles are the very best part of the World. They serve the community by calling attention to our veterans and offering much needed inspiration.
My compliments as an avid reader and retired journalist. Oklahomans practice all faiths, including no faith at all. Sen. Wayne Shaw, R-Grove, seems to believe that our national motto was founded as “In God We Trust.” Perhaps he is in need of a history lesson. This motto was created in 1956 in an attempt to take the moral high ground against the “atheistic” communists. This was well after the lives of our founding fathers, who believed in choice of religion, not forcing Christianity on the populous. Our Founding Fathers chose “E Pluribus Unum,” or “Out of Many, One.”
Given Sen. Shaw's Founding Fathers argument, I wonder if he would consider this as an historically accurate alternative. things as changing school names (Columbus, Chouteau, Jackson, Lee and Ford). I will rest a lot easier knowing that I don't have to see the name of Mr. Chouteau, who was a vicious animal abuser because he was a “fur trader.”
You people have got to be kidding! Superintendent Gist must not have much to do.
