    CTBT is dead at the hands of the Know-Nothing GOP Congress. Save your breath, Jake. You opened the door to them.

    Maverick:

    I totally agree with your and the letter writer's support of CTBT, but I have to say that I don't understand your reference to the east bench, where I live, and where plenty of my neighbors also support CTBT. Where do you think much of the support for Democrats and liberals in Utah resides? Why do you think the Republicans' redistricting efforts are focused on diluting Democrats' power on the east side of Salt Lake City? Why do you suppose that my state senator and representative are Democrats?

    I would have thought you were above such stereotyping.

    Finally some sanity in this discussion which has been dominated by bomb shelter living repubs who demand that money keep being wasted away on outrageous defense spending and nuke testing.

    I just wonder if they would have a different opinion if they actually had to PAY for the defense costs, instead of just passing everything onto the middle-class and poor classes. And if they actually had to live as down-winders instead of on the beachfront houses or east bench homes.
