Blog Post, Nov. 9
"Dead Red"
I don't ever want to hear again about how this is a family values state; it's a state that thrives on prejudice traits.
James Shields

The GOP in this state could run a goat on their ticket and locals would vote for it.
Corban Anderson
Via Facebook

Actually as a non-Republican I might vote for that goat; it would be the best candidate they've ever had. Goat for President!
Teresa Moon Tate

Relocating to SLC from NYC in a few weeks and looking forward to turning the state blue.
Alexandra Smiley

If it had been Bernie Sanders, this state would have been BLUE!
Annmarie Thomson

I always said Utah would vote for the devil if he had an R after his name. They unfortunately proved me right this time
Larae Anderson

I wondered how much of a horrible person it would take for Utah to not vote red ... I guess we still don't know and that is sad.
David Taylor

In a state whose dominant religion knows Jesus is a Republican, that's what you get.
Keri Bryant
Via Facebook

But we are now finished with the idea that Utah is a religious state. No one voting Trump ever heard of Jesus.

I was saying it from the beginning. Anything else was wishful thinking.

I think I'll just stick to getting Southern food when I'm in the South.

Well color me blushed. Thanks, sir, for the mention.

Cinema, Nov. 3, Hacksaw Ridge
The trailer for this movie literally told the whole story. Looked corny as hell. Doss was a hero in real life, no doubt about that.

Facebook post, Nov. 9, "If you're a gay kid in Utah, know that ... You are beautiful, you are unique and one day you will get your opportunity to shine."
And you have people who love and support you and will stand up for your rights stronger than before.
Dana McCombs
Via Facebook

I wouldn't treat you bad! That's stupid to be like that.
Holly Anderson
Via Facebook

I want to spread the word on this. My daughters and I and other members of my family are wearing safety pins so that endangered people will readily know others who are safe havens of support.
Joan T Lind
Via Facebook

Only ignorant people judge. You are loved!
Annmarie Thomson

Remember: It gets better.

Post-election thoughts
The uncertainty and trepidation following the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States hid what should be of greater concern: Just over 12,000 people voted for Super Dell Schanze for Governor of Utah. Because he threatened those who didn't vote for him with the judgment or wrath of God, the number is either, theologically, inexplicably low or, rationally, outrageously high.
Michael M. Geer,
Sandy
