The title of the graph showing visitors to Utah's attractions that links it to Employment sets an unsubstantiated reference and could be misleading. There is no information given on how many unemployed became employed because of these visits. Certainly there were many who got jobs because of this increase but it would be proper journalism to justify that connection rather than infer it. Spinning the data is neither honest nor beneficial.

I should be called "Cynical one" for this post, but I do hope that most of the visitors ended up with the attitude of "A nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there."
Coming from an ex-Californian I hope you understand my sentiment. Where I came from Salt Lake City would have been a neighborhood.
