Utahns, let's turn in our friends and co-workers

Quite a few of our friends will be participating in a March Madness pool this month. Now that Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff has reminded us that March Madness pools are illegal in Utah, we feel no choice but to report our friends to law enforcement. After all, it's the rule of law.

We encourage each of you to call the cops on your lawbreaking acquaintances. We will feel righteous satisfaction when Mr. Shurtleff busts the two LDS bishops, the recently returned mission president, the former city council member, the lawyers, the award-winning community activist, and others we know -- not us, of course -- who will be participating in one particular pool.

You know, we really ought to. Can you think of a faster way of getting our silly laws changed than to have hundreds of our state's most prominent citizens hauled into court?

P.S. On an unrelated subject, does anyone else think that Kansas might go out in the first round?

I think anyone caught breaking these laws should not be allowed to have a driver's licenses, their children should have to pay out of state Higher Ed tuition and they should be ineligible for any public aid--after all, they are criminals, they have broken the law. [tongue in cheek]
