Friday Letters Round-up

I support raising taxes on people who are not me. --- It's hard to imagine how anybody in Utah could possibly be interested in the fact that a member of the LDS Church won an Olympic gold medal.

Lego My Logos*

The Bible: There have been nearly as many adaptations of that No. 1 bestseller as filibuster threats from Republican senators since the start of the 111th Congress. And why not?

Doug Stanhope: Live-er Than You

Didya know comedian Doug Stanhope is performing in Salt Lake City tomorrow? Probably not--he's underground like that.

Vicarious Viewing: Banff Film Festival

Vivid imagery plus inspiring athleticism meet, once again, at Banff Film Festival, hosted by the U's Outdoor Program at Kingsbury Hall this past week.---Whenever I go to outdoor sports film festivals, despite a desire to stay interested during kayaking, running or unicycling movies, I generally zone out.
