The winners and the losers

SHARE The winners and the losers

Winner: Smile! It will make everyone else feel better. That was the finding of a paper published Friday in a British medical journal and reported by The Associated Press. What really ought to make you smile is the thought that someone needed a study to figure this out.

Loser: Utah is losing ground when it comes to making college affordable and accessible, according to yet another study, this time by the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education. But then, 49 states received an F grade for affordability (California received a C-minus). Makes you wonder how on Earth all those students keep going year after year.

Loser: Police conducted yet another raid of Pioneer Park on Thursday, and they arrested seven people on felony charges, mostly related to drug possession. It's like shooting fish in a barrel. The sad thing is no mayor or City Council has yet been able to effectively change the culture in this historically important park.
