Re: “Called Into Question

This is incredibly damning, combined with everything else we know about Shurtleff the case against him is quite solid. I hope bringing to light his coke-fiend taskmasters will make him think twice about a run at the Senate.
This guy doesn't need more power, he needs to get the boot!

Re: “Disclose This

Yeah, Utah73 is definitely Koerber, Wimmer, or one of the many folks that Koerber has under the Imperius Curse; long live Koerber, the true Dark Lord!

Re: “Two-Faced Utah

What exactly is the point of this article? The claim that Pres. Hinckley single handedly held Utah's false public image together is among the more specious claims I've ever heard. Like all states, Utah has good, bad and ugly aspects. No single person no matter their position can control what the public sees or perceives. You make it sound as if Buttars and others were just waiting on Pres. Hinckley to die so that they could show their true stripes and start open season on "the gays." Come on! The world isn't a dime novel! We have always had the negative along side the positive and people didn't suddenly start noticing because Pres. Hinckley exited the scene. Events like Prop. 8 and Romney's presidential bid brought a brighter spotlight to Utah and the LDS faith; they have inflamed passions over deeply held beliefs. Those who have sought to see only the negative or only the positive in Utah and associate it with the LDS faith have ever done so and will ever do so. The only difference is that now there is more light on the stage and more people are watching the show. It would be helpful if we stopped portraying Utah in black and white and instead focused on the complexity and richness of the state. This article did not help, it just draws more false dichotomies.
