Straight Dope, Sept. 22, "Down with DNA"
Absolutely, a nation of risk takers, unfortunately, the risks now have a much greater implication.

Drink, Sept. 22, "Uniquely Utah Liquor"
[Five Wives vodka] is what I buy for my husband. The flavor is great and, most important, it is gluten-free. We also like the thought of supporting local business.

These are Max Hall's wives, correct?

On feminism and media
Why did Univision discontinue Sueño de Amor soap opera? I liked it. Why are they complaining about porn? Back in the 1960s, I had a husband exposed to porn and I objected, too. Home-wreckers ... And who brought all those women here to Utah in the first place? I like the dresses and jewelry the girls are wearing on TV. I know the feminists will object. I'm not a militant feminist. Just an old lady tired of being lied to.
Stephanie Maranhao,


Cartoon, "Gotta Love Utah Valley"
No, you really don't have to love Utah Valley ... like, at all.

Blog, Sept. 30, "'I Hope They Can Forgive Me': Senate hopeful Jason Christensen on the viral response to his anti-LGBTQ comments"
His rant revealed much more than "foot-in-mouth." He lacks true Christian compassion.
Via Twitter

Having lost a son to suicide, I know the pain this kind of loss brings. His apology is not an apology. Being a purportedly practicing member of the LDS church, he might want to review what they teach about those who die this way. I am angry at how heartless he is, I ache for the family whose grief he has added to. However, no matter how angry I am, I hope this is something he will never need to have first-hand experience with to understand just what he has done.
Melissa Lambert Hanson

He's backing down because he thought he'd have more backup and when they didn't show, he had his "Oh, shit" moment and tried to clean up the hate-filled vomit he projected onto the internet. It doesn't clean up that easy. You can't erase "horrible human" if you don't mean it.

He typed the words. That disease doesn't even apply. I thought Christians believed God was to be the only one to judge? What an insensitive jerk.
Pamela Stevens
Via Facebook

An apology was the decent thing to do. You can't get that from Trump, so Jason has that going for him. I wish the world could be rid of hatred and hateful poisonous rhetoric like this. It helps no one, but it hurts everyone.
Wade Haskell

There's a difference between not thinking and using your asinine imaginary friend as justification for dancing on a child's grave. There [are] few times I wish there's a God of some kind. But for this Shkreli-level sociopath, I hope this judgemental, evil God exists, because no punishment is good enough.

Did you know that if you commit political suicide, it's still murder?

  • 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.
