Feedback from Nov. 1 and Beyond

Readers sound off on pizza, biopics and medical cannabis.



Dine, Nov. 1, Spedelli's
Mr. Springer, I enjoyed your write-up on Spedelli's, a neighborhood place I've frequented for nearly two years.

Something unusual, is the fact that it also serves liquor. Prior to its arrival, only a 50-year-old beer bar called the Breeze Inn was here (and looked upon somewhat askance by the majority religious).

I was, however, surprised by your comment about "no competition" for pizza at the new location, given that the Big Apple Pizzeria is only four doors west, and has been here for 20-plus years serving great New York-style pies.
John Paul Brophy,

Film review, Nov. 1, Bohemian Rhapsody
I love how critics are all up in arms about this movie, where general public who haven't really thought of Queen in years is all agog with praise. I doubt there's a way to tell his story accurately unless you make a bio-epic the length of all three Lord of the Rings. Sheesh ...

I'm pretty sure City Weekly only approves of one movie every three months.

Decide for yourself. Criticism is just one person's opinion.

Thoughts on Prop 2
I'm thrilled with this.

Utah Legislature are gutting it as we speak.

The compromise put in by the legislature could pose a practical problem with Prop 2. Don't count your chickens just yet. I voted for it but Utah Legislature and the LDS church may have a few changes in mind that no one that voted for it had in mind.

No compromise, period!

Having a rare and painful bone disease, I'm so grateful it passed. It's [a] step in the right direction, and I just hope Utah keeps pressing forward to enact it! Patients need access to cannabis now.

Yeah, can't wait to get the cannabis lotion for the neuropathy in my feet. Thank you everyone for voting "Yes" on Prop 2.

I'm excited to see the changes in the bill. I voted no for the bill as it was on the ballot, but hope that both sides hold up their deal to revisit the language of the bill to make it better for all involved!

Does that mean for those who are against it, we can tell them "If you don't like it, then leave?"

Let's just hope they do not sandbag on permits/licensing.

I hope not. That is exactly what they are doing in Ohio right now.

I do recall other states in the past going through the same issues. I feel if so, it's [their] last ditch effort to block it as long as possible.
Rob Hall

I'll guarantee they will, you'll only get it if you have a week to live.
Keith Johnson

This will be blocked every chance they get. People's choice don't mean anything any more. Giant corporations like the LDS church run this country.

Just a little bit. A lot of people still have their heads planted firmly in their asses.

This bill sucks ass. Big time. I don't want edibles. Also, you have to be like on your deathbed or going to be in the next while practically to partake of said edibles.
