Twilight Solutions 

Cody Titmus’ letter is spot-on with the issues, and many of his scenarios are also found at other venues [“Twilight Ain’t What It Used To Be,” Aug. 15, City Weekly]. But he comes up short on solutions.

Perhaps raise the price to filter out the baser element, but I’m not so sure that would work if you consider the boorish behavior found at Red Butte and other higher-cost venues.

I think the key way to address this is through the words and actions of the artists themselves—if they care, that is. Some may revel in the very behavior in question, but I’ve seen more than a couple of instances of artists stopping and declaring that people either needed to behave “or we’re out of here,” and in each case it worked well.

  • 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.
