Mick makes a porno!

Uptight Utah Bans Film..
which, of course, will help it sell
religious fanatics completely misread film and, well, what do you expect...

Dear Dr. Laura: I read recently that some parts of Utah had banned the release of the new film "Zack and Miri Make a Porno". The film is about a guy and girl who have nothing better in their dull lives to do but to produce a pornographic film together just for the fun of it. I, for one, am sick and tired of films that exploit women AND men!!! Whatever happened to going to the cinema and watching a good movie?
Thank God that Utah, a state that won’t forfeit its values and morals, stands up to films such as these, and won’t let them play in theaters there. I am a high school
teacher, and believe me, Dr. Laura, our kids are craving to be taught values and morals...

Boycott Utah, Sundance Film Festival say Gays..
By BROCK VERGAKIS, AP
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah's growing tourism industry and the star-studded Sundance Film Festival are being targeted for a boycott by bloggers, gay rights activists and others seeking to punish the Mormon church for its aggressive promotion of California's ban on gay marriage.It could be a heavy price to pay. Tourism brings in $6 billion a year to Utah, with world-class skiing, the spectacular red rock country and the film festival founded by Robert Redford among the state's popular tourist draws.
"At a fundamental level, the Utah Mormons crossed the line on this one," said gay rights activist John Aravosis, an influential Washington, D.C-based blogger. "They just took marriage away from 20,000 couples and made their children bastards. You don't do that and get away with it."Salt Lake City is the world headquarters for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which counts about 62 percent of Utah residents as members.The church encouraged its members to work to pass California's Proposition 8 by volunteering their time and money for the campaign. Thousands of Mormons worked as grassroots volunteers and gave tens of millions of dollars to the campaign.

So the cops finally caught up with Zea Mangan. If I recall correctly, she and husband Dragon ran a low-key brothel in Santa Barbara, employing college students. I never hear about prostitution arrests involving the city's high-end places. I guess that's because those people work as "escorts." Zea and Dragon put the sizzle in the Solstice Parade. Now, it's pretty boring. Ah, the old days.
