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.

One recent one came from Charles Payne, a host on the Fox Business Network, who commented that “The LEGO Movie” was “anti-business.” (I was on vacation when “The LEGO Movie” was released, but I’ve seen it twice.
