POSTCARD FROM SALT LAKE CITY

Salt Lake City 2002

February 22, 2002|By Candus Thomson

Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson has inadvertently answered that age-old question:

What if you gave a party and no one came?

His much-ballyhooed, $2.5 million "alternative" block party at City Hall, not far from the official doings at the Olympics Medal Plaza, has had all the spark of a wet match.

Except for one afternoon, when the Beach Boys (who sang a song called "Salt Lake City" back in 1965) packed the joint, everyone's having fun, fun, fun somewhere else.

It's Rocky's party, and he'll cry if he wants to.
