Loser: The 2002 movie "Catch me if you can," was based on the real-life exploits of Frank Abagnale. He was a master of deception who, among other things, faked being a pilot for a major airline. It's amusing and interesting in a movie; not so much in real life. Authorities say Philippe Jernnard, a Frenchman, made his way into the cockpit of an Air France flight this week wearing a shirt with the airline's logo and a blazer with epaulets. Only problem was, he wasn't a pilot; and never has been. Unlike in the movie, the crew became suspicious and Jernnard was arrested. His next role may be that of an inmate, which ought to be more convincing.
Winner: Gov. Gary Herbert's decision Friday to veto HB76, the controversial "constitutional carry" bill that would have allowed anyone to carry a concealed weapon without a permit, was the right thing. Utah already has sensible gun laws in place allowing for the right to bear arms while requiring people to complete a course before being issued a concealed weapon permit. The bill was intended for little more than to send a message to Washington. Message bills seldom add up to good public policy. The only question remaining is whether the Legislature will convene a special session to override the veto. For the good of all Utahns, they should just leave things alone.
