Liberal, Alternative, Community 

Pin It

I was interrupted by a very friendly telemarketer from MediaOne offering an exciting special for the paper. I politely informed the gal that the only local media I consume is City Weekly.

This followed: “What’s the City Weekly, some liberal paper?”

Me: [Chuckle] “Well ...”

Telemarketer: “Some kind of alternative paper?”

Me: “Well, what’s alternative in Salt Lake is generally mainstream in the rest of the world.”

Telemarketer: “But don’t you want to keep up with your community?”

Me: “City Weekly keeps me up with my community.”

Telemarketer: …

Thought you might enjoy that. Please keep up the good work, and thanks for keeping me plugged into my community.

  • 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.
