re: JimInSLCJust 5??
The Romney's 15 minutes of fame expired 5 minutes ago. Please no more
stories of these folks. It is not news.There are a lot of things
happening around the world that should be reported that is not. The economy is
a serious issue, start reporting on the waste, fraud, and abuse in public
sector. Bring it to light and maybe the people will start demanding some
results from their elected representatives.Nero fiddled while Rome
burned, and the US is going to collapse while everyone is distracted watching
This newspaper is lds owned. The romneys are lds.So what's wrong with
Somehow, I knew it would be about their palatial estate. What do
they not want a home which they rarely use (or need?) to be assessed and *taxed*
This article demonstrates how the Romney's do not see themselves as
"Entitled" and how Ann basically took the position as an ordinary
citizen at a local meeting. Most other celebs, and make no mistake, the
Romney's are celebs would call a press conference and call out the local
govt official. What a nice change up from the norm.
Ann Romney can't get her car elevator fast enough? At a time when
we're supposedly the wealthiest nation on earth, and yet our middle class
is only the 27th wealthiest?I have absolutely no sympathy.
@JohnJacobJingleHeimerSchmidtActually this a news story about a
family with all the political influence in the world who goes before the City
Council like anyone else. I think that's news is today's world. Good
on ya' Ann!
I live in Idaho, and DEPEND on Deseret News to help me keep track of what the
California Romneys are doing these days!!(-;
To Furry about non-local news: there are more members of the church outside of
Utah than inside, and outside the US than inside. Further, it has been this way
for years. It is about time that residents of SLC realize that they are not the
center of the Church's universe.
@ MrTuscadero, this story has nothing, zip, zero, nada, rien, to do with Obama.
Stop trying to drag Obama into everything. It's kind of like those
annoying comments on stories that are exclusive to either BYU or the U of U
which are unrelated potshots about the other school.
I also don't think this story is newsworthy. On the other hand, it has
generated several comments so maybe it is. On thing for sure, it is difficult to
believe those who claim they do not care when they obviously care enough to both
read it and comment on it. That would include me. I don't care about this
story either :)
This is news?Has the DN become another National Enquirer?
It is good to see that she exercised her right to speak at the council meeting.
It's just one of the things that makes living in a secular democratic
republic so great.
I think this was newsworthy, because it brings home to me that absolutely nobody
knows what accoutrements are in Obama's new Hawaiian house, even though he
bought it during the election itself. I don't fault the writer of this
story, but the entire journalism profession for the blinders it always seems to
The Romney's are the epitome of out of touch rich people. How many homes do
these people need? They are filthy rich rub your face in it rich!
News worthy? Depends on your viewpoint. However, no one forced anyone to read
the story. If you don't like the Romneys, it's not difficult to read
the headline and decline to read the rest of the story.I wish
disdain could be turned into gold through alchemy. A man could retire a
billionaire after reading the effort of some commenters to Deseret News stories.
Not Utah news, so why in the Utah section? And she appeared Tuesday, and this is
Friday. I saw this story last Wednesday. So is the DesNews still the cheerleader
for the Romney? Isn't it time to move on?
I thought Mitt was from Massachusetts. Or was that Michigan? Or maybe New
Hampshire? Or Utah?
deseret pete,We read it because the DesNews deemed it so important
they made it the lead article on their web site. That doesn't mean we
actually give a wet ball of lint or agree as to its importance.
Newsworthy stories attract attention, and inspire comments, as this one has
Yet again, the DN positions itself as the Romney News.
I wasn't going to comment on the story except to disagree with some of the
commenters. This is a newsworthy story. Is it hard news? no it isn't, but
is all one understands of a society is that which would be hard news one is
missing a major piece of understanding.
If you don't care about this story why are you reading it and commenting
about it ?
Sometimes real special people come across rather intimidating?She probably
gave it her all.
"I want it and I want it NOW"!
I'm sorry ... but why am I supposed to care about this story?
As one who lived in San Diego for 30 years and had to deal with County
regulations and hassles, I can say Anne wasted her time. Nice try, but nothing
will speed up the review period. San Diego is one of the toughest cities to get
News in San Diego? Maybe. News in Utah? No. Why is this non-Utah-news being
covered in the DesNews?
Is this what this news source had become? A Romney tracker for a guy who had
tried twice and failed for President? This is not a news story.
