Cover story, Oct. 19, "Satanists Are People, Too"
Fascinating article. I have known many of the local satanists and it's encouraging to see them portrayed as the thoughtful souls that they are.

Love the love given to our satanic friends, but what about the rest of us pagans, necromancers included? Maybe an article?

This is ridiculous. What the hell is the state coming to? God is greater than any being. Nothing better to represent besides Satan worshipers. Appalling. And God is watching.

Saw this cover today when I grabbed lunch, and felt my spirits soar. Knowing there are Christians all over the state just shitting their pants over this ... honestly, it just really brightened my shitty day.

A "god" is a god—no matter what you call them—and it is equally ridiculous to "worship" any of them. I just hope satanists are smart enough not to vote for someone like Trump, unlike most Christians.

The argument of "whose fairytale is better" always amuses me.

One thing is certain: Satanist are Democrats.

Satan's a pretty cool dude—obviously stands for anti-authority and all that fun stuff. But to believe in any of that biblical shit about him, you would have to first admit the bible is real, and that's just ridiculous.

News, Oct. 19, "Fight or Flight"
It's a shame the city isn't this forgiving with, say, families who are struggling financially and can't afford to pay their bills. It's time to re-evaluate some priorities, especially if ZAP doesn't think The Leonardo offers relevant cultural or artistic experiences (and if there's a lack of patronage, then perhaps ZAP is right).

This is completely irresponsible. I stopped going to The Leonardo as I found their special exhibits to always be underwhelming and overpriced. The city should not continue their absolute subsidy of this place.

Opinion, Oct. 19, "Eternal Memory"
An impressive article about a truly impressive man.
Antoinette Sotiriou
Via cityweekly.net

A beautiful tribute.

The Ocho, Oct. 19, "Rocky Times"
A city mayor cannot dismantle the state-run DABC. Jazz is awesome! I was at that debate. It was fun! Maybe a third term is still coming. Cheers!
Rob Miller
Via cityweekly.net

Except I like Jazz. Kudos for the otherwise well-crafted backhanded compliment piece.

True, because uninformed Mormons keep re-electing them.
Deborah Lynne Connor

Not a Utah problem only.
Howard Elder

I liked Rocky.

Beer Nerd, Oct. 19, "Festival Favorites"
Congratulations to both of these breweries. This is quite an honor. And both beers are outstanding.

Blog post, Oct. 27, "Hatch Says Bears Ears Reduction Is a Go"
Anyone who supports that old bastard for re-election should have their head examined! If you have ever had a parent die of old age, you would know better. He's a stooge for the GOP to manipulate. Please, don't do this to our earth, we need new fresh minds. These people in charge right now are going to be the death of us all.
Corey Hildebrand

If it would have been an Obama issue he would have said no like he always has. He needs to go been in too long.
George Moulos

This all about Ivory and the Chamber of Commerce and developing the land that belonged to the indigenous peoples! These thieves make me sick!
Tom Hongaku

So, when yet again public opinion sways one way, and elected leaders another, at what point do we start calling ourselves an oligarchy?
Tyler Jacobsen

Vote him out of office. Let the court deal with Trump attacking the Antiquities Act.
Layne Jones

What do they care? They're too old and nearly dead to visit it anyway. They would die from heat exhaustion in the winter time.
