Bag 'Em

[Protest] Let's see. If it's on Main Street, if it requires a long row of body bags for props it must be ... a protest!

OK. We'll bite.

From sponsoring agency Utah Health Department: By lining up body bags "Utah's youth anti-tobacco revolution--the Phoenix Alliance--will show Utahns how many people die from tobacco products every day in this country."

Those kooky kids will line 'em up this Thursday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in front of the TRAX line on Main between 100 South and 400 South. Then again, more body bags from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in front of the Energy Solutions Arena, on South Temple between 200 West and 300 West.

So, just to underscore: Downtown will be lousy with body bags during Thursday's afternoon rush hour. Do not be alarmed. (Holly Mullen)

  1. Let's see: We've got thousands of our troops dying needlessly to line the pockets of rich oil barons, millions of Baby Boomers on the brink of collecting social security, a madman in office, a movement afoot to destroy the educational system ... and what do these kids choose to protest about?

    Health problems related to cigarette smoking.

    Smart, kids. Smart.
