Dear GYA, What a bummer! Now that reporters are banned from Temple Square, how will we possibly be informed about all the exciting ins-and-outs and crazy happenings of General Conference... besides watching it on television and listening to it on the radio? Fuck. Anything happening this weekend besides General Conference? - Russ Wathurlle, Cottonwood Heights---
