    Business for business sake is like building a car with no wheels.

    Business has a purpose and that purpose is to serve the community of people.

    Different people have different skills and the trading of those skills allows everyone to have the benefits from of the special skills of one for another's. The system for doing that is known as business.

    The excellence of performance of that function can enhance the personal wealth of the businessman to the point where the original purpose of business gets lost in the scramble for wealth. That's when promoting business becomes more profitable than operating the business itself.

    Easing the entry into the business system is a needed and valuable service when a business is needed by the community. But, adding an unneeded business operation just for the jobs and revenue is a disservice to the people of the community.

    If the new jobs do not raise the level of wages for the community, the quality of life will be diminished, simply because more people require more community services. So while businessmen and politicians gain, the ordinary people lose.

    Well more power to these guys and gals! I hope the entrepreneurial model rescues lots of people, including my children. But it's interesting and disturbing that on this same page your editors are documenting the trashing of a whole generation of people - the excrement of the market system, the baby-boomers. As they said in the old Mad Magazine - what's wrong with this picture?

    Welcome problem-solving and job creating entrepreneurs?

    Is that code for Utah to subsidize and offer other taxpayer funded handouts to businessmen?
