Situational Analysis – September 17, 2020

Happy Thursday morning. The good news: We’re all one day older and wiser. The bad news: We’re all one day closer to being dead.

This Week’s Trivia Answer
Trivia wonks totally bombed this week. I’m so disappointed. No one correctly answered David Schneider’s tough question: Name the Utah legislator whose name was on a November general election ballot twice, once for his seat in the Legislature (he lost his re-election bid) and once for a seat on the local school board (he won). The answer is Rep. Royal T. Harward, R-Loa, in the election of 1970. The candidates who beat Harward for the legislative seat was a Democrat. “How times have changed,” Dave noted, “from when a Republican representing Beaver, Garfield, Wayne and Piute counties loses to a Democrat.”

If you have a good trivia question, send it to [email protected]. Otherwise, I have one involving the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Wait for it.
