Abu Kissi, owner of The British Pantry, gives a foreigner’s view'from England by way of Ghana'on President Bush’s pending Utah visit:



I think it’s good for Bush to come here. It gives Utah more recognition even in the USA. I’ve got friends back East, and when I tell them I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, they ask, ‘What continent is that on?’ If the mayor would really sit back and go by what the rest of the nation knows, [he would see] when Bush comes here, it will be on national TV, it will draw more eyes to Utah, it’s going to be good for trade and tourism. So the mayor may protest as much as he wants, but I believe in your country the president calls the shots, no?
