We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

If you could launch a boycott against another state, which would would it be, and why?

n

Susan Kruithof: Ohio, for sure. What right does it have to have so damned many urban centers? Cleveland, Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo and Sandusky. And it has two kick-ass amusement parks. Who the F do they think they are? Spread the wealth: Nebraska needs something, anything, for Christ’s sake.

n

Jennifer Nixon: I would totally boycott Vermont or New Hampshire. They just sit there, being boring, way off in the East. Those states need to be stirred up a bit!

n

n

Derek Carlisle: Texas! That state should never be able to have a presidential nominee, kind of like how Japan wasn’t allowed to have a military after World War II.

n

Jayne Pedersen: Texas, you jerk! You keep teasing me with your cowboy boots! I love them, want them and my feet do not. Stop making them look so damned cool!

n

n

Brandon Burt: The state of affairs that allows people to delude themselves into thinking they are rational and compassionate beings while acting out of hate, fear and bigotry. How do I boycott that?

n

n

Bryan Bale: Let’s boycott Alaska. Better yet, let’s invade them and take their oil! The pit bulls will welcome us as liberators!

n

n

Jamie Gadette: No, I wouldn’t, because boycotting an entire state is ridiculous and counterproductive. Responding to ignorant legislation with ignorant stereotypes hardly approximates progress.

n

n

Nick Clark: Idaho. It’s just trying to steal our thunder.

n

Cesar Guzman: Utah, definitely. I can’t believe the LDS Church helped pass proposition h8te! One more thing: Utah was won by McCain.

n

n

Derek Jones: Colorado. Evangelical megachurches and their repressed congregations freak me out more than most Mormons.

n

n

Holly Mullen: Idaho, because our hapless neighbor to the north is shaped like a pork chop.

n

n

Annie Quan: Kansas. Not only are their liquor laws worse than ours (I was told on a flight through Kansas they couldn’t serve alcohol during a certain time because that particular county was dry—including its airspace), it banned gay marriage by 70 percent. So, not only are gays not welcome, they can’t even get a drink!
