Salt Lake Tribune's Hive Is Buzzing

Is this headline: "Crews turn Capitol into busy beehive", from the same Tribune that gave us this editorial? They must be as busy as bees at the Tribune to have engaged is such a religious faux pas--particularly since they are still harping on the same issue. Go figure.

Not being a Utahn myself, I can't help but roll my eyes a little when reading the editorial. Utah has Mormon roots, plain and simple. Just because non-mormons live there now, does that mean you need to hack away at the state history with the revisionaist police looking over your shoulder? I mean, give me a break.

The Latter-day Saints settled Utah; it makes sense that some of Utah's early iconography would echo that of the church, but, as others have moved to the state, it has become theirs as well.

Next thing you know, we'll be seeing editorials demanding a change of name for Pennsylvania.

naiah: Or perhaps Utah could just swap Pennsylvania the beehive for the Liberty Bell.
