Here we go again! Every January we have to put up with the hype surrounding the Sundance Film Festival from the media and all the "good" it does for our state. A good number of us could not care less about what it does for the economy, the Hollywood brats who come to it or anything else.

The media need to do the state a big favor and shut up and ignore it completely, just as most of us do. What they are doing is giving the festival a lot of free advertising, something they would never do for us common people.
