    Utah has never been a drinker’s paradise. Most residents belong to the Mormon Church, which forbids the use of alcohol, and the state has notoriously strict liquor laws. Beer on tap at a bar, for example, can have no more than 4 percent alcohol by volume.

    WASHINGTON — In 1929, Chief Justice William Howard Taft convinced Congress to finance construction of “a building of dignity and importance” for the Supreme Court. He could not have imagined what the court will ponder during oral arguments Wednesday. The case concerns the name of an Asian-American rock band: The Slants.

    Volkswagen’s indefensible meddling with vehicle emissions to circumvent U.S. environmental standards cost the international car maker billions of dollars in settlements, fines and lost sales. Now, the Justice Department has taken a new, welcome step and indicted six high-level VW employees on conspiracy and fraud charges. Some are accused of overseeing the development of diesel engines equipped with “defeat devices” — software that could tell the car to increase emissions controls when it detected the car was being tested. Others allegedly covered up the scheme by destroying emails and taking other steps to deter regulators from uncovering the truth.

    In an era of harsh political division in Washington, Senate Republicans and Democrats have found one area of unanimity: Human sex trafficking is bad, child sex trafficking is worse and the online site Backpage provides a $600 million marketing platform for this sort of sleaze to expand rapidly across the country.
