    I’m surprised how few middle class people have solid life insurance policies. I don’t really worry about dying, but I do worry about leaving my wife without an income. MJ would be worth quite a bit if I died today, but don’t tell her that.

    And I just watch from the corner, so no issues from me.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    If I tell her that, what are the chances that your reach your untimely demise?
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Tbh, you aren’t her type. She doesn’t go for severely overweight people.

    Okay, so I've never been known to turn down a double cheeseburger. But still, that was below the belt.

    at least i think it was- can't exactly see my belt under there.

    I really thought you were going to go for the TKO with that setup. Good for you for showing restraint!

    https://ksltv.com/407886/brad-staple...AhC4a1JjEM-KHQ
    Based on his obit:

    Brad and Jana moved back to St. George in the end of 2004 and he joined his dad as a pharmacist at the then Bateman Pharmacy. A few months later, the pharmacy was renamed to Stapley Pharmacy. By 2014, Brad and Evan had expanded their family of pharmacies by adding Stapley Pharmacy at Dino Crossing and the additional C3 closed door pharmacy. In June of 2015, Brad and Jana purchased the business from his mother and father, Evan and Faith Stapley, where he has since served as Pharmacist, CEO and President. He had a vision to draw people in with his personal care and genuine concern for the patients and customers who would patron the stores. By the end of 2015, he expanded one more additional location in the Carter’s Market Enterprise, Utah.
    Seems his dad might be going back to work as he is the only person who can keep the business afloat for now. Being that he is a pharmacist. I assume with them owning 4 pharmacies, they are doing alright financially.

    Bump. This Mo in the news for all the wrong reasons. Sadly, KSL buries the lead a bit by leaving out the fact that the guy was an LDS bishop (!) at the time he was arrested.

    The other news channels don't miss their chance to pounce, however:

    https://kutv.com/news/local/man-arre...-as-lds-bishop

    I want to believe that the church just couldn't have known this guy should not be a priesthood key holder, as is the case many times when church leaders go rogue. But I think you can make a pretty good argument that wasn't the case here:
    2News learned that back in 2012, Moss was asked to resign from the St. George City Police Department. He was in the position of lieutenant with supervisory power over various units, including members of the gang and vice squads. He had been employed with the department for 15 years prior to allegations that he had engaged in consensual relationships with at least one or two women, at least one of whom was his subordinate. The disciplinary action in asking him to resign was based on the fact that he was on duty or had an active duty component when engaging in those relationships.
    I'm a proponent of a 1-strike-and-you're-out-of-all-future-church-leadership-callings policy. Perhaps that exists and I'm just not aware of it. So for now, I"ll go ahead and assume that he was somehow able to keep the gory details from his SGPD departure under wraps. That said, as someone who grew up there and knows just how small a town St. George is, I find it difficult to believe that his church leaders didn't find out about that stuff back then.

    That is a crazy case. I can't imagine being in that ward. Going to be a fun sunday this week.

    I am guessing that nobody knew about the St George stuff, even his family. Hard to believe his wife would not know, but it could happen. Unfortunately no way the church to know unless he brought it up.

    Such a crazy story. Yeah, there is no way they knew about the St. George stuff. What an awful human being.
