America, You Sexy Bitch

America, You Sexy Bitch is not a book. Based on the #twitterrelationship between @McCainBlogette and @michaelianblack it is a road trip project that should lead to a movie.

Two people that are very different take you along on a crazy ride all over the US.

Oh, wait, it’s just on paper. Anyway, they should make a movie out of it because the landscapes and people are so real.

Labor Sunday

The Sunday of Labor Day Weekend, September 2, is Labor Sunday, a day to look at the realities of the labor market in Utah County, the struggles and opportunities people in our community are having. At Provo Community United Church of Christ we had LeAnn Powell as a guest speaker who works hard to help people find employment. She introduced us to faces of joblessness in Utah County and also introduced resources for a successful job hunt.
