8/24/06: Bush's Visit to SLC
Salt Lake City, UT – Thursday on RadioWest, we're hoping to hear from you - responding to this question: What is significant about George W Bush's visit to Utah next week? The President's speech before the American Legion Convention isn't the reason Utahns are enthused about the visit. The convention will be a back-drop for two very different rallies - for those who support the President and his direction in the war on terror - and those who are decidedly against it. How are you thinking about it? Which rally are you going to attend, and why
