Cover story, Feb. 28, "The Unsinkable Shireen Ghorbani"
Haven't ever been this excited to see a City Weekly. Congrats, Shireen Ghorbani. Thank you for fighting the good fight and working to represent all of Utah. I love you, truly.
You are amazing. You are relentless. The best public servant characteristics.
The Democrat/media cabal is strong. And now out of the closet, proud and unashamed.
This woman is an unstoppable energy. Wanna know the best part? She cares so much about those around her, that she fights every single day to make our community better. If you haven't yet, meet Shireen. Once you meet her, you just know. It's almost inexplicable how just being in her presence gets you excited about change and democracy. Hellooooo Salt Lake County's newest council member.
Looking forward to your political climb. Chris Stewart should join Trump in prison, and then hell.
Sure do wish she was the mayor of SL County. Next election should fix that.

"Unsinkable Shireen Ghorbani" has a nice ring to it! Thank you for running again; we really appreciate having you to represent us.

He should be popular in prison.

Florida man comes to Utah!
Glad they got him. World doesn't need that stuff!
A slap on the wrist. This is the Utah we all know.

Justice isn't vengeance. Justice means the best possible good for all moving forward. Don't taint yourself with the hatred you never wanted in the first place.

Assault is assault, regardless of what happened first.
Suspects have the right to defend themselves in court. Otherwise, most of us are not interested in hearing their side.
Seriously, the police need more evidence? WTF.

He didn't look drunk in the video. He looks like a douche pickle!
Online News Post, Feb. 24, "Lawmakers, LGBTQ advocates draft bill to ban conversion therapy"
An awesome step for the future.
Why does it take these old men so long to face basic reality?
That this even has to be a bill is the saddest of all bills. That had damn well better pass!
Editor's note: HB399 was altered in committee. A gutted substitute motion by Judiciary Committee Chairwoman Karianne Lisonbee, R-Clearfield, took its place.
Online News Post, Feb. 28, "Abortion & Taxes: Guv tackles 'divisive' issues"
Not his choice to make. Period!
I'm not sure why they want to waste time and money passing bills with qualifying events needed before they could be acted upon. The more immediately disturbing story here is the tax reform by a sponsor that won't answer questions or provide details around the plan. Makes it seem like they are basing it on their individual gut feeling or maybe making changes to personally profit.
That's how Utah government works.
The only topic that Republicans consult science about.
How about we defund all these programs and I keep my money instead of paying taxes?
What do we need another state reptile for? We already have Gayle Ruzicka. I guess gila monsters are much cuter and far less venomous. We did need a new state fossil since Sen. "Snake Oil" Hatch hung up his carpet bag.
State hamburger? I nominate Willard "Fliptwit" Romney can hold the gentile pickles, please.
The Utah Legislature needs a remedial civics lesson. The operative phrase is "We the people" not "We the corporation of cheese and rice of Rattle-day Snakes."
The Mormons should be stripped of their tax exemption and treated like any other political action committee. They can't even spell his name right. Jesus was Greek to Y'shua, son of Joseph, and I don't think he visited Utah after he was murdered ... skiing hadn't been invented yet. I think ICE should deport 'em all back to Kolob where they came from and take the orange-haired current occupant with them.
