Living Traditions

I went to the Salt Lake Living Traditions festival last night. The festival will run through Sunday.

I remember previous festivals having more art booths. The quality of food at festivals is definately improving. Many of the booths are now operated by area restaurants.

The next event on my schedule is Questioning Minds which will feature a talk by Pat Cutting on Kofi Annan and the UN.

It will be interesting to see if Ms. Cutting prefers a strong executive in the United Nations. Personally, I prefer the UN having separate and independent boards for each if its initiatives. For that matter, I think the one on going flaw of the United States is that the structure of the government places too much power in the president. The questioning minds presentation will be on Sunday at the SL Library from 1:45PM to 4:30PM.
