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.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Poll results show polls are bullshit!



When was the last time you were asked your opinion on anything other than "Paper or plastic?"---

I am constantly amazed at the number of polls that keep popping up in the news on everything from, should Tiger Woods use a 6 iron or a chain saw?, to, "do you think the earth is gettng warmer?"  The headline in this mornings D-News really changed my mind about a subject that I have no opinion on and no way of knowing a damn thing about the.  "POLL FINDS UTAHNS COOLING TOWARD GLOBAL WARMING".  So?  Dan Jones has made a very lucrative living asking people what they think about tons of things and I have never been one of those asked.  So should I just go along with the sheep who read this crap and think that these 408 selected nobodies should think for me?  No, why?  Because it is all bullshit.  We have a conference going on in Copenhagen where thousands of learned scientists have compared decades of notes and studies to try and determine what is going on with the subject of climate change.  The general concensus is that the earth is getting a tad warmer than it has been in eons.

The major issue that has the right and left going at each others throats is did man have anything to do with this change?  I say to all, I don't care.  It only matters that we have clean water and clean air and we can do something about that.  All this other stuff seems rather pointless because even I know that the earth is a living thing that is ever changing over eons and we, humanity, are only but a blip in the grand scheme of the universe.  I wonder if we will have as long a run as the dinosaurs?  I won't be around to find out but somebody or something will and I wonder if Dan Jones will ask our opinion on that?  Why not, it's just all bullshit anyway.
