Exploring the S-Line creative space in Sugar House
Salt Lake City has always been home to unique spaces utilized for the arts. There are a dozen different locations that have come and gone over the years, many who are still in business to this day, giving creative individuals space away from their day job and home life where they can sit down and hammer out great works, all while being surrounded by fellow artists as an inspiration.

Learning the pros and cons of for-profit incarsonation.
Ah, the muck and mire that is the for-profit prison system in America. Doesn't matter what side you take on any of the issues surrounding how we're the world's #1 country of people incarcerated per capita, or how we feel about the death penalty, or the work we're doing (or not doing) to rehabilitate people so they don't find themselves back in prison: You'll often find yourselves at the end of a losing argument in some fashion.
