Work Sends me to Mormonville -> Mormon Pope Dies

Naturally, on my first trip to Salt Lake City, the head of the Mormon church would die and create an international spectacle.

Gordon B. Hinckley, the president and prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who led Mormonism through a period of global expansion, died Sunday at his apartment in Salt Lake City. He was 97.

Well folks, when life gives you dead prophet, roll up your sleeves and make dead prophet-ade. That means we hop in our car, and head down to the Mormon Temple to witness the spectacle first hand.

Much to the delight of the news crews that showed up, a group of studentmourners starting singing hymns:

Fret not, no business trips to Vatican City planned.

Meanwhile, Salt Lake City is wondering when Mittens is going to speak up...
