Liberal, Alternative, Community



I was interrupted by a very friendly telemarketer from MediaOne offering an exciting special for the paper. I politely informed the gal that the only local media I consume is City Weekly.

This followed: “What’s the City Weekly, some liberal paper?”

Me: [Chuckle] “Well ...”

Telemarketer: “Some kind of alternative paper?”

Me: “Well, what’s alternative in Salt Lake is generally mainstream in the rest of the world.”

Telemarketer: “But don’t you want to keep up with your community?”

Me: “City Weekly keeps me up with my community.”

Telemarketer: …

Thought you might enjoy that. Please keep up the good work, and thanks for keeping me plugged into my community.
