On a side note, the end of the article mentions a Mormon* fundamentalist group:

Bluffdale itself is a small city of 8,000 people, and it’s also the headquarters of the Apostolic United Brethren, a Mormon fundamentalist group.

I’ve lived twenty minutes from Bluffdale the past decade and this is the first I’ve heard of them.

* The ‘Mormon’ fundamentalist groups tend to be akin to what Scientology is to Science.

“I’m 67 and bored.”

I’d forgotten about this.

He was also implied in a murder.

I’m also curious about his new product “D-Central”.
