Times They Are A-Changin'

So how often does the Deseret Morning News quote Dylan? (And I don’t mean Dylan Thomas.)

See the final line of today’s editorial.

The opinion is a good one. Problem is, the Utah Senate was criticized for a stance that isn’t ours. Depending on the final wording, we think most of our senators will approve the Legacy Parkway Agreement, even if they have to hold their nose while doing so.

Jennifer Dobner got it right.

We might respectfully submit a bit of advice to the venerable editorial board, also from Dylan:
. . . keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
Keep paying attention… and check the AP wire more often.

Taking this "deal" sends one message and only one message - "the people and government of Utah can be bullied and intimidated."

If that message is sent, we'll never be able to build anything in this state again - not without the Sierra club's OK, that is. Not only must we fight this, but we must pass laws that make it difficult, if not impossible, for out-of-state wackos to shut down vital state initiatives again.

"The first question which you will ask and which I must try to answer is this, What is the use of climbing Mount Everest? and my answer must at once be, It is no use. There is not the slightest prospect of any gain whatsoever. Oh, we may learn a little about the behaviour of the human body at high altitudes, and possibly medical men may turn our observation to some account for the purposes of aviation. But otherwise nothing will come of it. We shall not bring back a single bit of gold or silver, not a gem, nor any coal or iron. We shall not find a single foot of earth that can be planted with crops to raise food. It's no use. So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for."
