The Kresta Spencer and Carrie Taylor ad about their upcoming union in Salt Lake City ran July 27 in The Herald-Journal.

Since then, the newspaper has received two letters to the editor (one for and one against), 10 e-mails, several phone calls and four subscription cancellations over publication of the announcement.

Managing Editor Charles McCollum said he was surprised the ad didn’t generate more controversy.

“You would think in small-town Utah that it would be magnified quite a bit, as conservative as we are,” he said.

Emphasis mine.

    This is a wonderful, happy, positive sign. I knew I liked Salt Lake City for a reason!

  2. Four subscription cancellations?
