Re: Interview with new commit Aurion Peoples

I'm very excited we landed this young man----6'4", 300 lbs and a run stopper. And he seems like a high quality young man too boot.

Re: Cockett comments from sources to channel 2.

Why does Cockett have to adopt your premise that there are people at USU who want to be rid of LDS people? What if that's not true?

Occam's Razor. The simplest explanation doesn't seem to be that Hartwell and Cockett made disturbing allegations.
