Academic Explains Why Rumors Show Mormons Protected from Harm
Amid false rumors and widely-circulated e-mails, claiming divine intervention among Mormon missionaries and BYU interns, Mary Ellen Robertson delivered a speech at the Sixth Annual Religious Studies Conference at Utah Valley State College in Provo claiming that some members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are exhibiting the "Chosen People Syndrome." An expert on violence in Mormon history and scripture, Robertson sees a traditional longing for uniqueness along with an ecclesiastical mandate to be "in the world but not of the world," which leads to the syndrome.

Politics: Anthrax Scare Slows Congress, but not Hatch and Reid
Activity in the U.S. Congress slowed considerably last week as the congress dealt with the anthrax scare.

In spite of the scare, the U.S. House managed to vote nearly unanimously for seven bills, while the Senate looked at a couple of conference reports on major appropriations bills.

Guess Who Near Wrapping Up American Tour
If there is ever a rock anthem titled "reconciliation," it would have to be by The Guess Who. While most baby-boomers will, if they remember the band, know that the group died long ago, and maybe even remember that the Mormon beliefs of its leader, Randy Bachman, played a factor in the group's demise.

Never on Sunday, Not Even in Las Vegas
Utah furniture and electronics retailer R.C. Willey Home Furnishings already has a store in Henderson, Nevada and plans to open two more stores in the Las Vegas area, presenting what may be the biggest challenge in the company's 69-year history.

Willey's longstanding policy of closing on Sunday.
