I’m headed to Salt Lake City for the altweekly conference with Allen Broach, hoping to be accepted in this august body. While I’m there, I’ll be chilling with some old friends, making Mormon jokes and soaking up as much journalism knowledge as I can.
There’s plenty here in town to amuse yourself with while we’re gone.
