Barnard Was a Friend to Animals 

PETA joins everyone working for social justice across the country in mourning the loss of civil rights attorney Brian Barnard of the Utah Legal Clinic. As an advocate for anyone without a voice in our legal system, Barnard strove to protect everyone’s rights—including the rights of animals, of whom he was both a friend and defender. Over the years, Barnard helped PETA secure our right to speak out about the discrimination and abuse often imposed upon animals. One such victory upheld our right to distribute leaflets at schools. With Barnard’s support, PETA also won the right to protest the injuries inflicted on animals in a rodeo held during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. There could be no better way to remember Brian Barnard than by working toward a fairer society for all, human and nonhuman alike.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
