I had to chuckle while reading the front page of the Sept. 13 Salt Lake Tribune. Gov. Gary Herbert is quoted as saying, “We need to find a way to pay teachers more.”

He should read the article at the top of the front page, have a little chat with the LDS Church about its opposition to Proposition 2, get medical marijuana legalized and use the windfall of taxes that will come flooding in from the sale of said medical marijuana to hire the best teachers available! Problem solved!

It really is a no-brainer.
