The orginal title said, "GOP brass visiting Utah -- Gov doesn't see S.L. as favorite for convention", but it was changed online to say, "Utah has better chance to host 2016 convention Herbert says."
Funny how a little pressure from the Governor can change a negative into a positive.
I wonder who will be driving the GOP BrASS around? We do have gay bars, but I'm not sure we have any transvestite bars, but if we do they should be excited about the possible extra couple thousand dollars they'll make tonight!
And, think of the new bars that might come to town if only they could get a liquor license. Maybe the legislature will change the laws to accommodate GOP leadership for their 2012 convention.
At least they know who to call if they want to find a hot tub for a round of naked -- you can look but don't touch -- solitaire.

The Deseret News learned of the allegations against Garn just before the GOP primary election in 2002. Garn sat down and spoke about the incident with Deseret News reporters and editors.
At the time, Garn and now-U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, were in a tight primary race seeking the Republican nomination for the 1st Congressional District and Garn was the Utah House majority leader, a position he has, again, achieved.
Deseret News editors decided not to run a story about the indiscretion at that time, since the GOP primary was only weeks away and the incident had occurred years before.
The editors decided to wait to see if Garn advanced in the primary before deciding whether to publish a story.
Because Garn lost that primary, and therefore was also retiring from the Utah House, the newspaper never published a story.
The D News owes the public an apology. Report the news and let your readers decide how to feel about it.
This is disgusting!
