OMG. Not acceptable

This story could go deeper. It focuses on domestic violence within the native communities, despite the statistically high rate of violence perpetrated against native women by whites. More on the latter issue would be valuable.

But how far? 5K? 13.1? Or a full 26.2 marathon? Let's see him run!

We need somebody like him. Someone who's a strong speaker, well thought, believes in listening, honest and bold. You are the man.

He will make a great mayor. Much better than the one in office, but doing nothing, now.

Hmmm. That's still a lot lower than I thought they made, and lower than state level politicians who only work less than the city council members. Also, still below the living wage in SLC.

Get over it. Or perhaps, we should all "compromise."

Man, they'd have a stroke if they saw what the apostates have been making.
