Salt Lake City: We Heart Cheating

The people of Salt Lake City are known for many splendored things. Today, we are known for our roving eyes and keystrokes. --- According to an article in USA Today, Salt Lake City residents rank fourth in the nation as members of AshleyMadison.com, a site that facilitates "discreet" encounters. In other words, we cheat, just like folks in Washington, D.C., San Antonio, Texas, and Phoenix who rank ahead of us.

The site is expecting a banner day tomorrow, the day after Valentine's Day, when the disillusioned married folk among us will venture out in search of romance and, it turns out, simple appreciation. Those operating the site argue that cheating can actually strengthen a marriage.

It's not like the concept is a trial balloon; AshleyMadison.com is a $60 million enterprise.

It makes you wonder about the couples you see on TRAX and in the audience at a Jazz game. How many are making plans for a secret rendezvous?

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too.
