I can verify that there is no secret nuclear test site in Utah as Hersh claims...

@41 Except in Utah.

@2 - Murray is busy prepping for his new role as the education mayor. Mayoral appointees to the school board, the city running pre-K, soon mayoral control of schools. No matter that he's not doing the stuff he should be doing - he's too busy expanding the scope of his job.

@4 Connor is on the way out. Logan, Payson, Hyrum, Jackson, and Brigham are all more popular than Connor nowadays. Still waiting for Nephi and Moroni to get popular....

SLC Airport was better before the mass eviction of the more local establishments in favor of the national crapola. For entertainment, find the nearest Deseret Books and ask them about buying Fawn Brodie's No Man Knows My History.

It's A Small World playing endlessly would do me in. Probably why I don't go to Disneyland anymore.

Cheney knew exactly what was going on. Bush was too stupid.

I have worked in a drug store, in a restaurant, in a hospital, a nursing rehab center, and for an airline. I worked every holiday for YEARS, and sometimes the only time I had a chance to get to the grocery store was ON Thanksgiving. I agree with retail stores/malls being closed for gratuitous shopping, but there are always going to be some essential services/stores that will need to be open - travel services, gas stations, drug stores, grocery stores - and there will always be someone willing to work it. That's the way it is. Don't like it, go work at a bank instead. You'll get all your holidays off.

Perhaps the Dems can find some better candidates. These fake Dems, DINOs, and Neolibs they've been running are pathetic. Run ON a Dem platform instead of running away from it.

Your income (and family status in the church) usually determines where you go on your missions.

Of the friends I had growing up who went on their missions - they either came back brainwashed and totally different than when they left, or they came back early/quit the church. One friend who went to BYU for a time got tired of being spied upon and reported for any number of things, including clothing, books read, and people she talked to who might or might not be Mormon. She transferred to U of AZ and was much happier. In grad school in Utah, all of the Mos were on public assistance and still popping out kids. No shame that they were getting WIC, stuff from the local food bank, and pretty much any income-related special fund/utility price/credit they could get their hands on. But they still paid their tithe and voted Republican. One couple who did ask for a break due to job loss were told they still needed to pay their tithe. Eventually they did not, and had "home visits" all the time until they finally left the state - and the church.
Now the church has changed the age for missionaries, so now the younger, more impressionable/malleable teens go rather than kids who may have a year or two of college and independent decision making under their belt. I wonder if the number of returning missionaries who are disillusioned with the church and its ruling body of old, white, hateful men will be lessened considerably because of this. But of course, we'll probably never know. The "free press" in Utah is mostly church owned and even if it is not church owned, it is definitely church controlled.
