Overheard at SLC: Nov 13—Nov 19

During this Thanksgiving season, we recognize that life, though full of suffering and strife, is filled with things worth being grateful for. Are these things family, friends, and good health? Hell no. No, we give thanks for preposterous quotes taken out of context. This week’s Overheard at SLC features a heaping helping of pegging, Buddy Holly, and of course, turkey—hold the genocide and colonialism. If only we did. If only we did.
