Welcome to the Senate! Where the buffalo roam and the skies are not cloudy all day. Nice to have talent like that around.

Oh my heck! Is this a joke? When did part-time legislators get chiefs of staff?

I know the Senate President and the Speaker of the House have chief deputies and chiefs of staff (some would say it's actually the entire House and Senate that have these staffers), but when did individual legislators get their own chiefs of staff? And how many other staffers will the chief of staff be the chief of? Is Morgan going to name a deputy chief of staff, a policy director, a constituent services director, a scheduler, and a driver?

The Salt Lake Tribune may soon be suing bloggers, commenters, website owners etc via the copyright trolling outfit Righthaven. We need to let the trib know that if Righthaven files even one lawsuit over a Salt Lake Tribune article that we will organize the entire Utah blogging community to mount a massive boycott of the Salt Lake Tribune and its advertisers.
