Do you know a lot of people but still feel lonely?

Good Things Utah
  • On Good Things Utah this morning – Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey was trending Tuesday on Twitter for his response to Texas Governor Greg Abbott saying he has now tested negative for COVID four days after testing positive. Abbott credited the vaccine for a “brief and mild” infection. Austin’s famous resident replied, “Glad you’re now testing negative for Covid Governor Abbott. Thank you for mentioning that ‘the vaccination you received made your infection brief and mild.’ Health to you, Cecilia, Texas, and beyond.” McConaughey ended his message with, “Mask, vax and just keep livin’.” Could it be his new catch phrase?

  • And Olivia Rodrigo has been one of the most popular artists of the year and her loyal listeners have catapulted her music to new heights.
