Pass the Nerve Gas 

Pin It

How refreshing it is for us Utahns to live in a state where the present conditions are so good that Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman, in a very limited session, can afford the time to introduce, debate and vote on a bill creating an official state gun.

Hell, while they are at it, why not introduce a bill creating an official state chemical weapon? I think the nerve gas otherwise known as Agent VX should be considered over the more archaic mustard gas. After all, it got more worldwide press when the sheep started to drop near Dugway in 1968. As a deterrent, one can only speculate as to the lives that would have been lost without it.

  • 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.
