Utah & the Wall Street Journal

So, what is it with the WSJ and Utah? Last week, they ran a story on bankruptcy with their signature bio focusing on Utahns. This week, they’ve chosen another Utahn to discuss individuals who want to buy health insurance and aren’t covered by their employers. The story starts:

“John Craig, a 46-year-old software consultant in Orem, Utah, plays racquetball twice a week, doesn’t smoke or drink and isn’t overweight. But when he tried to get an individual health-insurance policy three years ago, he was rejected.”

Apparently, because he takes anti-depression medication and had allergy problems (which ceased after he stopped eating wheat!), insurance companies won’t touch him. Maybe it is just because he seems to have near perfect health, i.e. no drinking or smoking. However, it seems clear the man is Mormon, right?

Link to full article. I don't understand the signifigance of your question about whether or not John Craig is a Mormon. What is your argument? That the Wall Street Journal likes writing about Mormons?
