FrontRunner Debuts in Utah


Now that The Deseret News has picked up on the fact that the Utah Transit Authority’s’s new rail line, the FrontRunner, bears the same name as Patricia Nell Warren’s gay novel, watch the wingnuts stand up to have it changed.

The chairwoman of Equality Utah said: “Maybe now enlightenment will be riding into the state on the rails of transit.”

The new train, which the UTA says “can whisk you from Ogden to Salt Lake City in 15 minutes,” replaces the Brokeback Express, whose cars, after many years of use, were still having problems coupling.
