It seems the paper (our city’s paper) is not devoted to balanced, unbiased reporting. If it were, there would be a countering article about this woman’s incredible life and career that reflects anything but subjugation or a personal philosophy that somehow would threaten women’s rights. Judge Barrett’s accomplishments as an exceptional law professor, highly regarded appeals court judge and working mother of seven are a model of a balanced commitment to her profession, her family and her faith. Furthermore, her working husband clearly supports her career and role in the family.
Make a commitment to publish a true news journal with balanced, unbiased articles that allow your readers to decide for themselves the truth.

Continuing the fight against cancer
After the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Cancer Society joined a long list of organizations, businesses and individuals struggling for survival. We have seen more than 1,000 of our colleagues lose their jobs. Our annual events and fundraisers have been severely impacted. Still, we are trying to hang on, as the core mission of our 107-year history has been to provide services for friends and neighbors fighting cancer.
This year in Oklahoma, an estimated 3,100 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed, with nearly 600 estimated deaths. The good news is our life-saving research is working. Breast cancer death rates among women declined 40% from 1989 to 2016. And those lives saved are a direct result of the generous support of our donors and volunteers.
Our annual “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk” will continue, but this year in a virtual setting the weekend of Oct. 17-18. Participants can walk in their neighborhoods and still contribute to the fight against breast cancer. Register at the city nearest you: www.makingstrideswalk.org/okcok or www.makingstrideswalk.org/tulsa. We can’t let this pandemic roll back the many years of progress we have made attacking cancer.
