City Weekly’s April 9 issue was full of laughs! Thank you.

After this winter, I needed these: Tom Owens’ “Two-Bit Street” and Kristen Sproul’s letter [“Regulate the Mexican!”] showing how totally clueless she is. Then, on page 6, making three pages in a row, you were on a roll: Saltas being a “crybaby” [“Raining Tears,” Private Eye] well done. On page 10, Ask a Mexican and Rant Control [“Pastrami Burgers Are Sacrosanct”], the “fraught with mischief” Beer Nut ad on page 11, Cecil Adams’ Straight Dope “Forever Young” on page 13—four pages of laughs! Now you’ve outdone yourselves!

It was also one of the best of Deep Ends [“Nearly News”]. K Chronicles is always one of my faves, but way in the back, what do we find but Babs De Lay’s words from the farm? Hilarious! I don’t see how you can top it. Thank you again.

  • 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.
