Utah’s Chaffetz takes a tour of the liberal side » Rep. Elijiah Cummings gets a laugh when he points out that Utah has a problem with wild horses. That’s not something fathomable for the folks in inner-city Baltimore where the more pressing concerns are crime, unemployment and poverty.

Germany says it can’t fund Utah town’s massacre monument » Construction has stopped on a memorial in Salina after the German government said it cannot help finance the project to remember nine prisoners of war who were murdered 70 years ago in the central Utah town. Mike Rose, who wrote a book about the 1945 massacre of the German POWs and is leading efforts to build the memorial, said the German diplomats he spoke to had been supportive. He thought he had a commitment for the money and had stopped fund raising. But Rose received an email on May 20 from the German consulate in Los Angeles saying the German government would not send money.
