I pledge to find the humor in Ruzicka | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

I pledge to find the humor in Ruzicka



Gayle Ruzicka has determined that "if it's yellow, let it mellow" is leftist propaganda.%uFFFD Set aside your animosity toward Ruzicka, and please join me in a big, full-belly laugh.---

Remember when Obama, the former community organizer, said he was going to promote community service? A video was made to promote this initiative, featuring Hollywood stars and Obama's disembodied voice. After Obama's intro, the celebrities make certain pledges, like "I pledge to smile more" and "I'm going to start by using less bottled water."

Gayle went ballistic when she received complaints from parents that the video was shown at an elementary school assembly, Lisa Schenkner reports this morning.

My gosh, Gayle, don't you have scarier dragons to slay?%uFFFD Would you have been concerned in 1991 when I was in 2nd grade and George H.W. Bush came to Bismarck, North Dakota, and everyone in my school went down to the capitol grounds to watch Bush plant a special tree? If I remember correctly, that was a part of wacky-leftist Earth Day. OH MY GOD, the president, a Republican president, was spreading leftist propoganda!!%uFFFD The president also gave each little student a pine tree of his or her own to take home and plant.%uFFFD Oh for shame!

Anyway, don't get mad, readers.%uFFFD Just laugh.%uFFFD Utah would not be the same without Gayle.%uFFFD We owe her thanks for being so colorful. Her power is waning, I promise. Not only that, but chica sells papers, so we in the media owe her more thanks than most.%uFFFD I'll forgive you if you want to be salty with her, especially if you have personal history with her, but don't get mad, get glad!

I make my own pledge.%uFFFD I pledge to find the humor in Gayle Ruzicka before ever getting angry at her.
