Newsletter For The Week Of December 4, 2019.

I Know, You Know, We All Know a Mormon House (L.R. Encinas, The Beehive)

“The family room in a Mormon home projects a feigned modesty, which is a central tension in the cultural identity. It’s comfortable, but not too comfortable. It’s big, but not too big. It’s decorated, but not overly so. Its style is, more precisely, a communicated lack of style, like negative white space, or ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ signage.

When you as little as glance at the microfiber sofa in the living room, you can practically smell the hot dogs eaten at the RC Willey tent sale from whence it came. You’ve been sold on the microfiber by an RC Willey salesman because kids are messy! Practicality! Good deal! Kids eat free on Saturdays!”

Former governor Mike Leavitt allocated $75,000 to the nation’s first obscenity and pornography complaints ombudsmen, saying the position would 'codify our highest moral aspirations.' The porn czar was born.”

The first federal cyberstalking case in the history of Utah is confirmed after a Hawaii man sends 500 different service vendors to a North Salt Lake house. And Utah County is streamlining the marriage process with an app that allows you to fill out a marriage license at 1am while watching Netflix in your jammies.
