"Why is your Governor Gary Herbert so mean? Your governor seems to believe in governing by hysteria.

"Your Governor Herbert is consciously bringing harm to 2,600 citizens of Utah. That's mean-spirited. He didn't have to do that. Your governor is trying to put toothpaste back in the tube."

-- Actor and social media sensation George Takei, speaking to the Salt Lake Tribune in advance of his trip to Utah this week for the Sundance Film Festival.
