Sensible Utah citizens will gather at Sam Weller's Bookstore (254 South Main Street, Salt Lake City) on Saturday, January 22nd at 4:00 PM to discuss topics of interest for the upcoming legislative session. Discussion at Be $ensible: A Gathering will be led by speakers Rod Decker of KUTV and Paul Rolly of the Salt Lake Tribune and moderated by Patrick A. Shea. In addition to legislative prognostication, the meeting will stress the need for a return to $ensibility in political discourse and governance. To promote sensibility in all aspects of public life, Be $ensible buttons will be distributed to help spread the message of sensibility beyond the gathering. Sam Weller’s Bookstore will offer a 10% discount as an incentive to anyone wearing a Be $ensible button during the state legislative session. Sensibility and critical thinking begin with educational opportunity. Sam Weller’s Bookstore will also have a list of titles available for attendees to donate to Bennion Elementary School’s library during the event. All books from Bennion’s requested list purchased for donation will be discounted 20% and delivered by Sam Weller’s. Bennion is a Title 1 School in which 86% of the students are economically disadvantaged, but that’s not the whole story: Students at Bennion speak over 19 languages and represent cultures around the globe, and their teachers have an average of 20 years experience accompanied by a deep commitment to the academic and personal progress of each child. Be $ensible will be conducting a contest throughout the 2011 Legislative session. Citizens will be asked to submit nominations to www.besensible.org for the most sensible and the least sensible legislative acts and statements, the best alternative, and for the best Pat Bagley cartoon which captures the 2011 session. Be $ensible will gather for a post-session review on Saturday, March 12, 2011 at Sam Weller's, when awards will be presented for the winning nominations. (Alexandria_annex)
