Dear GYA, As a pale, balding and blonde, 40-year-old Utahn, I like to think that my demographic is by far the palest. In fact, we take great pride in knowing that when we go outside we have to lather our bald heads with a full bottle of SPF 100 in fear of being completely annihilated by the sun, or as we call it, The Harbinger of Death. Anything happening this weekend for those of us who hate the sun? - Mark Fullshore, Salt Lake City
