@ Rifleman: No one should get a pass. I could care less about what takes place
in Chicago, except for the idea of can my Bears get back to the Super Bowl. In
Utah we expect our politicians to be more than that. Unfortunately where there
is smoke there is money burning in the chimney making that smoke.
Re: Pagan | 3:25 p.m. Sept. 7, 2011"You have a STRANGE concept of a
'saint' Rifleman."When compared with former Illinois Democratic
Gov. Rod Blagojevich even you look like a saint. Trying to sell a US Senate
seat to the highest bidder is standard operating procedure in Illinois.

Re: CHS 85 | 12:56 p.m. Sept. 7, 2011 Politics in Chicago make our
problems here in Utah fade into oblivion. Didn't former Illinois Democratic
Gov. Rod Blagojevich that went to prison for trying to sell a senate seat to the
highest bidder?Makes Herbert look like a saint.
@RiflemanSo "Illinois and Chicago" style politics are how
you suggest we do business here in Utah? I thought it was always you who
decried the actions of others while putting Utah on a pedistal of decorum and
integrity. So which is it?
@RiflemanI didn't say it was a problem? I'm pretty sure I said
nothing of the sort. My point is that true journalism tells the whole story,
not just the non-controversial parts. Journalists today are afraid to do their
jobs, seemingly content to provide sound-bite stories instead of investigating
the story and getting background information. Maybe there's an
ethical conflict, maybe not. It would be nice to know, though, as they are now
receiving compensation from public coffers.
Re: CHS 85 | 11:30 a.m. Sept. 7, 2011 That's a problem? It never
ever happened in Illinois and Chicago to be more specific?Sometimes
we swallow a camel and choke on a gnat.
@CHS85: I'm sure they both were.
Funny that you didn't mention that Clyde was a major contributor to Governor
Herbert's re-election campaign.
