Feedback from May 24 and Beyond

Our readers sound off on corruption, cake and the future of print.



News, May 24, "Trib Voices"
Thanks for doing this piece. [Those who were laid off] are fantastic journalists and people need to appreciate what they're losing.

How about an Amazon Kindle-style model? Cheap to give away the tablets, and sell the content. Moving physical paper objects around has retired. Much too costly and fixed compared to custom digital news ... Let's start a digital subscription campaign. I'll start today and purchase a one-year digital-only subscription. (The paper ones were so massive, I could never read them all anyway and wasted a lot of paper.) Go digital, Salt Lake Tribune.

Online news post, June 4, With a couple exceptions, Utah leaders decry SCOTUS Masterpiece Cakeshop ruling
Justified 7-2 ruling. They should [have] baked their own damn cake! Or found a bakery that caters to the LBGQTRSTUBCYZA crowd.

So by this logic, a doctor could refuse to save the pathetic life of a religious bigot?

Nobody ever mentions good business. It's just good business to take clients; it doesn't make any sense to turn away business opportunities. I would never turn a couple away because of whatever. That's bad business!

The cake maker is an ass who got paid to fight it by political Christians and white supremacists. It is true a business can refuse service, but this was not Christian and not about religion but rather bigotry and hate.

I bet Jesus would bake the cake, but I don't expect a self serving "representative" such as Orrin Hatch, to understand that.

Hatch needs to retire or die already.

I sure as hell do not think he is.

He should be in jail.
