Good job, Utah legislators! Yea, Gov. Gary Herbert!

It's comforting to know we won't be wasting money educating our children, and that we still occupy that special place among states in per-student spending (last!).

Instead, we will build a beautiful new prison, so when our uneducated children break the law with guns they easily purchase and carry tucked out of sight in their underwear, we will have a nice place to send them.
