The things that cause me to worry about "conservative" politician Chris Cannon are pretty much the same things that cause me concern about his brother Joe, editor of the Deseret Morning News.

Both brothers seem to strongly believe that if people would just chuck out more hungry mouths to fill these nearly vacant public schools, and if we would just totally remove that silly southern border ... then everything would be just peachy here and all would indeed be well in Zion. Both Cannons appear to be identically incapable of recognizing that the horrific Sept. 11 disasters were basically caused by weaknesses in immigration policy and a failure to control who is coming into the country. And neither Cannon wants to admit that there's a huge difference between free trade and fair trade.
