Feedback from April 5 and Beyond

Our readers opine on departing senators, old-school eats and fruity beers.



Cover story, April 5, "Dabakis Is Leaving the Building"
Great. Best thing that ever happened to Salt Lake City!

Sen. Jim Dabakis will be missed deeply. Very few political figures are for-and-with the people.

I will miss his emails.

I'm so sad. He's my hero.

Sad to see him go; I loved reading his posts exposing Utah's political ongoings.

The only person that made me feel like I was being represented in some way. Now, not so much.

I'm gonna miss that guy. Hell, the whole state is gonna miss him, and two-thirds of them don't even know it.

Restaurant review, April 5, The Five Alls
Wonder if they still make their clam dip and yummy, soft breadsticks?

I went there for junior prom in the early 80s. I always smile when I drive by and see it's still open. I feel the same about La Caille.

Blog post, April 14, "Couple Hundred Gather at Capitol Steps for Pro-Gun Rights Rally"
How could anyone be against background checks for the mentally ill? They must be mentally ill and should probably fear background checks with good reason.

Second pro-gun parade in as many months. If only the Second Amendment fetishists actually did what they think they did and protected America from the constant government oversight that plagues society every day. But yeah, we really need another pride parade.

Ammosexual Pride Parade.

Were there enough Twinkies to go around? Looks like "tens" of people showed up.

The only good American is a dead American that doesn't own a gun, beside the patriot who shot him, right?

I'm really impressed at how this gutter-waste of a nothing paper can bring the [redacted ableist term] out of the woodwork. If you look in the back pages of it, all it's supporting/promoting is the porn community—with chat lines, massage parlors and adult entertainment industries.

Kudos to City Weekly for covering this. I think the rally is ridiculous, as this is similar to white people marching for Civil Rights, but all we can [expect] of our press, is that they try and cover every angle of things. This issue clearly means a lot to some people in the public, so it's cool it got some coverage.

White people can't have Civil Rights?
