End of Days? 

That was a fun article by Jim Catano about the coming end times [“Act Now!” May 5, City Weekly]. These predictions go way back, and Jesus told his audience that some of them would live to see the kingdom of God (Mark 9:1; Luke 9:27, 21:32; Matthew 16:27-28).

But just because Christ erred so badly doesn’t mean everybody will. The Mayans could be right about 2012 being the end, so I will hold off mocking them until a year or two later.

  • Booze Trains Are Better Than Booze Cars

    I read a City Weekly letter titled "Booze Train" [Aug. 28] that both angered and saddened me. The letter was written by a Mr. Douglas Cotant who was so offended by the "loud talking" of some mildly inebriated passengers that he threatened to write a letter to the governor asking that "UTA be shut down for allowing patrons who use alcoholic beverages to ride the trains."

  • Stop Dancing Like No One Is Watching; UTA Has Problems, But Boozy Riders Ain't One

    My husband and I have been Red Butte Garden members for years, and we've been attending concerts since at least 2001. Up until this year, the only complaint we've had were people butting into the general admission line for the concerts.
