At the Utah state Republican convention, a funny comment was made that should be shared with your readers.

In the lobby, I took the opportunity to share with Attorney General Mark Shurtleff my concerns about the payday loan industry and — in specific — the fact he takes so much money from that group. (To be fair, Shurtleff is doing many good things on other fronts.) I shared some opinions and facts. At one point he asked the source of my information. I responded most had come from Deseret News articles written by Lee Davidson. He blew me off with a pejorative comment about that "liberal newspaper." The comment made me chuckle. Only at the Utah Republican convention could the Deseret News be accused of being a "liberal newspaper." Shurtleff must not get out of state much.
