State of the Debate
George Pyle
George Pyle has been a newspaper writer in Kansas, Utah, Upstate New York, and now Utah again, for more than 30 years - most of it as an editorial writer and columnist. Now on his second tour of duty on The Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board, he has also done a stretch as a talk radio host, published a book on the ongoing flaws of U.S.agricultural policy and, in 1998, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing. His most active bookmarks are Andrew Sullivan, Christopher Hitchens and Tina Brown. And he still thinks the Internet can be used for intelligent conversation and uplifting ideas.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) BYU archaeology students Karley Salinas, left, and Shelley Watts sift through the dirt pulled from the site of the old Tabernacle, completed in 1867, which has been revealed once again beside the current Tabernacle which burned in December of 2010. The Office of Public Archeology at Brigham Young University is meticulously recording what they find as they dig through the original foundation of the building which once stood three stories tall.
A list we made. A list we didn't ...

Utah only state with two cities in the Top 10 — Provo and Salt Lake City.

Here's a list we didn't make:

- America's Coolest Cities - Morgan Brennan, Forbes

Might have something to do with the fact that the Coolest Cities list counts things like number of young professionals and number of restaurants and bars. Still, on a day when you can see the snow on the mountains - when you can see the mountains, that is - it is hard to believe that someone thinks Houston - Houston! - is cooler than Salt Lake City.
