    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!

    For someone who has dedicated so much time to studying mormons, he is incredibly tone deaf. All calculus, zero poetry.

    Here you go:

    A skilled biographer (McCullough, Chernow, etc.) helps you understand what made someone tick. You feel like you got a glimpse into their soul, warts and all. Turner is not that kind of biographer.

    Nice to see swift action taken here. This highlights the weirdness of the no phone calls rule. It probably shouldn't require courage to contact home or help.

    I would like to see the phone call rule changed.

    Sounds like the church handled this well. Terrible situation for those sisters.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.

    The name carries a rich tradition, heavy with responsibilities. Dennis Rodman's father is also named Philander and true to his name, has sired 29 kids with 16 women. It's like you're given a prime directive at birth.

    President Smartt has brought in the elders who were serving in the islands and replaced them with sisters. That was an inspired move
    Inspired, but by whom?
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Reading that article, I'm kind of surprised there are charges. Nobody quoted in the article, including the police sgt., seems to give a shit.

    So I did an image search for Smartt and found a blog entry from a senior missionary from his mission. Here's a pretty great quote from the first impression this senior missionary had of his new leader:

    He was so frustrated with trying to work with the LIAT airline dysfunctionality after trying for three weeks to get on a flight to St Kitts, that he has sent for his airplane. He said he will now be able to leave San Juan after breakfast, travel to any of the islands, and be back to the office for lunch.

    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Another gem from that blog:

    President Smartt has brought in the elders who were serving in the islands and replaced them with sisters. That was an inspired move, but the vehicle that the elders had been driving was given to the old couple being sent to Nevis (us), which left the sisters without wheels.
    Yes, I kind of took that quote out of context. I believe he eventually gave a car to the sisters serving out on a remote island.

    What a sweet deal!
    "Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr Epstein."

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."
