It is totally appropriate for the UTA light rail bash and the season opener for Ballet West and the Utah Symphony to occur on the same day.

They all have one thing in common. Without heavy tax subsidies, they could not, they would not continue to operate.As far as these organizations' supposed socially redeeming values? They are not much better than, or as good as, welfare recipients, panhandlers or the homeless.

They are all always asking for more.
