Indeed it was. The president had just dined at Sukiyabashi Jiro, where the Michelin three-star chef, octogenarian sushi master Jiro Ono, was featured in the documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” Let’s hope Obama didn’t fill up too much during his 90-minute meal. He has three state dinners in his honor on the trip. The seven-day, four...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Mike Lee for hosting a “town hall” at Copper Hills High School last week. He’s been trying to change his tune since his home state approval ratings nose-dived following the federal government shutdown last October. “Perhaps he really has changed,” I thought. Not a chance! The “Stop Agenda 21!!!” bumper stickers in the parking lot, I now see, were a sign. You see, “If you follow the logic of the shutdown, you come to only one conclusion: President Obama chose to shut down t...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Now that the Legislature’s session has concluded, I offer, by popular demand, a second battery of test questions that would earn a Utah stamp of approval: 1.

Fear your own agenda,” Opinion, Feb. 24): Sports Illustrated. The magazine’s recent swimsuit edition featured three lovely young topless women in thong bikini bottoms, arms draped around one another, hands resting playfully on each other’s bare… well, you get the picture. Yet I haven’t heard any outcries about how SI is trying to convince our young women to become lesbians.

I must have read it at least a dozen times in high school without realizing that it was trying to turn me gay. Think about it. Two guys stuck on an island without women? Becoming best friends across cultural and racial lines? Sleeping in the same hut? Cannibalism as a metaphor… See what I mean? Then there’s the screen adaptation of my favorite novel, Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird.” It wasn’t until I watch...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
