Dear GYA, As the Governor of Utah, it's my duty to reassure the citizens of Utah that today's inversion is nothing to worry about ... and that you are all sexy, sexy people. Think of the inversion as a warm, sensual love spray covering your body, and think of me as a large, sweaty man looming over you with a mist bottle. Anything happening this weekend as sexy and sensual as inversion? - Gov. Gary Herbert
