Feedback from Aug. 8 and Beyond

Readers opine on women's soccer, UTA and the mayoral race.



Cover story, Aug. 8, "DNA Detections"
This is so cool and inspiring. I'm so happy for these folks who found each other. Very well-written article as well. Thanks for putting this out here!

Opinion, Aug. 8, "Gun Control: Time to Do it Right"
I almost choked on his plastic sincerity. Donald Trump, you are the author of America's hate ... buck stops at the White House door ... take ownership. Thank you, [Michael S.] Robinson Sr. and City Weekly.

Hits & Misses, Aug. 8, "The Billboard Race"
Interesting observations. First thing I thought of when I read Jim Dabakis' criticisms about his opponents' use of billboards [Luz Escamilla] were that he might want to discuss policy not billboards. I don't vote in SLC, though, so this is just an observation.

And not one of them will ever include the area in which I live but I just keep paying for UTA and other peoples' transportation costs. Socialism in Utah.

Hope to see you at some Aggie women's soccer games this season—starting with the exhibition against SUU. We could use support. The girls look promising this season!

Amen to that!
