Still Not Laughing

So, I was hoping that the article about the LDS Church taking over City Weekly was some kind of sick joke ... however, it appears that the joke is on all of us, and it kind of does make me sick. [“End of an Era,” April 1, City Weekly].

I was just wondering if it was coincidence that a Fox 13 news ad appeared in the latest issue, when I don’t recall seeing one before. Aha! Let the damning of the independent paper begin! But, I’ll keep reading, at least until all of the “real” writers get fired and I just can’t take picking up the paper anymore.

Editor’s Note: Apparently, our April Fools’ joke continues to have legs. Again, to reassure our loyal readers, we were not actually sold to the LDS Church.

  • 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.
