The Salt Lake Temple and Architecture
Marilyn Karras, a reporter for the Deseret News, recently emailed 12 Salt Lake City architects and asked them which city buildings were the five best and five worst from an architect's point of view. Surprisingly, only two of the eight respondents choose the Salt Lake Temple as one of the best.

Lee. Lee is widely considered the scapegoat for the September 1857 massacre of a wagon train of more than 120 men, women and children on their way to California.

Dublin Reviewer Likes Low
DUBLIN, IRELAND -- The rock band Low, whose two principle members are a Mormon husband & wife team, played a concert in Dublin Thursday, attracting a positive review from Kevin Courtney who applauded the "understated brilliance" of lead singer Mimi Parker's voice and for "treating each tune with church-like reverence, and playing their instruments with the stilted pace of a priestly ritual." Courtney said that Low's music was so soft that he felt like he would be shushed for turning the pages in his notebook during the concert. The Duluth, Minnesota-based band returns to the US this weekend to complete its tour.
