"Sliced and Diced," April 29 Private Eye Column I share John Saltas' views of the good old days. I enjoyed the fishing ponds at Fairmont Park in the 1950s.

Unforgettable Joe Redburn This letter is in response to John Saltas' Private Eye column from last fall titled "Joe Redburn Days." Although I am not a member of the LBGTQ+ community, I have been in full support of it since 1967, ever since a young German man whose baptismal service I conducted as an LDS missionary in Berlin subsequently confessed to me that he was gay and asked for my forgiveness.

"Us vs. Us" May 13 Private Eye column Now you listen up, Mr. Saltas. You've said some really negative stuff about Utah's duly elected congressmen, Burgess Owens and Chris Stewart.

"Teardown for What? "May 6 cover story Unless you want to live somewhere small that stays small, then, sure, you don't need to build, and things will simultaneously be affordable.

"Pill Popping" April 8 Private Eye column I found John Saltas' "Pill Popping" article informative and timely. As someone who worked in the pharma industry for 30-plus years, mainly as a Drug Enforcement Administration compliance manager, I agree that flushing meds is not good for downstream inhabitants.

The Verdict A tear found its way into my eye today ... pushed by the word, "Guilty." One tear.

Decline in Churchgoers Not a Tragedy Sometimes I think the only reason City Weekly runs nonlocal submissions like the April 8 letter "America Unchurched" is so the staff can warm their hands over the flame war they imagine will erupt on Facebook, but I'll bite. Thomas Knapp spends the first half of his letter pointing out that church attendance is declining.

"Pill Popping" April 8 Private Eye column Your column is unfortunately absolutely accurate. There is a widespread "conspiracy" to overdose us, all with the best possible intentions.

America 'Unchurched' For the first time in its more than eight decades of surveying Americans' religious attitudes and practices, Gallup reports, church members constituted only 47% of the U.S. population in 2020—down 23% since 1999, prior to which the percentage seldom dipped below 70%. Why the precipitous drop, and what might it portend for the future?

"Herd Mentality" Private Eye March 25 column Globally, people are vying for the vaccine and, here we are, so privileged, and not realizing just how lucky we are to have access to it. All the haters still be like "Nah, it's a conspiracy."
