Power of Voting

People work for candidates they believe in to increase the chance that these candidates (or people like them) will, if not win, at least influence the direction and emphasis of other politicians [“Sanity Party,” May 10, City Weekly].

Short of pitchforks, that’s the only power we have. Abdicate that, and you guarantee that your preferences will remain not just unelectable, but worse: ignored. Your vote: Aim it where you want it to go.

You got conned by Obama; get over it and get to work.

  • 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.
