Did anyone else note the irony of two front-page articles in the May 15 News Tribune?
One decries the absurd media coverage of a kerfluffle between a Utah city and a homeowner over a front-yard box fort he had constructed for his children. The second is a serious article about the local middle school dance dress code and how wronged a student felt because she was made to cover her shoulders.
Both these issues could have been settled quietly, using common sense. Neither was important enough to be elevated to the public stage.
