Shine a Light 

Pin It

As a Deseret News subscriber and practicing Mormon, your story on the Deseret News in the year since the layoffs [“Deserted News,” Jan. 5, City Weekly] reminds me that City Weekly does, in fact, serve a useful purpose in shedding light where it needs to shine.

A year ago, I mourned the loss of some of my favorite writers, and continue to see how the Deseret News is still cutting corners. Whether or not these cuts are necessary in order to keep the paper solvent may still be debatable, but I’m glad to know at least part of the background to the bloodletting. I continue to read the Deseret News, but is it as good as it once was? No.

Reading D.P. Sorensen, on the other hand, is still a complete waste of time.

  • 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.
