Political Screw 

This is in regard to the letter to the editor “Flip-flop Fever” [June 2, City Weekly]. What folks should realize about politicians is that they can see only as far as the immediate audience.

Jon Huntsman Jr. has succumbed to his handlers’ advice. He needs to listen to his own.
And, for the “first alcoholic drinks ever” [Staff Box, June 2, City Weekly] of Sens. Waddoups and Valentine—and not just a few others—my wife, Mary, would serve ’em what they’ve been giving us for quite a while: a Slow, Comfortable Screw!

    I know that you are a left-leaning, liberal-biased "independent" newspaper, but your choice to highlight Deadbeat Dams in your Essentials entertainment picks [March 26, City Weekly] shows how far to the left you really lean.
