Dear person who keyed “Free Iraq!” into the elevator display,

I appreciate your concern. Your desire to achieve peace and harmony within and between nations, races, and creeds resonates with me. However, I’m relatively confident that Orrin Hatch doesn’t actually live here.

Your brother,

John D. Moore

    I also like “Free Aztlán”, but that’s far less likely than Free Iraq.

  2. I don’t know what Logan is talking about. I don’t know what anything is anymore.

  3. True, not as much popular support. Even still, do you think etching it into an elevator in a downtown Salt Lake City apartment building (which houses no influential people of note) is productive toward that cause in the slightest?

    Re: Aztlán: it’s a name from mythology the Chicano movement has applied to what is now California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, that is, the land wrested from Mexico in 1846—1848.
