Real men don't start Twitter fights

By John Saltas
POSTED // Feb 8,2012 - I had the pleasure—and it really was a pleasure—to meet Larry H. Miller one time. This newspaper was still in its newsletter stage, and I had been asked to produce a program for an upcoming national softball tournament that was soon to take place in Salt Lake City.
