[Vision2020] More Stuff

Although I believe that Wal-Mart would make an excellent location for New
Saint Andrews College, it is doubtful that Wal-Mart will consider selling.


My suggestion to the "powers that be" at Anselm House would be to consider
purchasing the old Tidyman's building.

Good points, Joe, and I think perhaps I spoke too soon in agreeing with
Donovan's assessment. However, I still deny that parking in downtown Moscow
is a real issue for anyone who doesn't mind walking a couple of blocks.


I have a solution to the NSA problem: Get Dougie to buy the Wal-Mart. Then,
NSA can have a shining campus on a hill and we can get rid of Wal-Mart. Two
birds with one stone!

You are wrong, Donovan. I want NSA in town, I just don't want them downtown.

Here is one gift that NSA downtown has given us: If the U of I wants to take
over downtown Moscow, then they are in a much better position to do so now
than they would have otherwise been without the CUP. 

Why is it that NSA is allowed downtown but the U of I is not? No substantive
reason. Thus, the U of I could now locate downtown if they wished. The only
thing preventing them from doing so is their own good grace. (NSA folks will
tell you that they are already downtown but that is not really true. If you
doubt this, suggest a counterexample.) 

Now the folks at NSA -- saints that they are -- have no intention of taking
over downtown through incremental measures: one or two building here, one or
two buildings there. But what is to prevent the U of I from doing so? Well,
as of now, nothing but their own good grace! 

Some of us think that the downtown area is not a good place for a college or
university, especially given that this town has had a college or university
for over 100 years and it is now big enough to take over the town, should it
so desire to do so. NSA downtown makes a U of I takeover more possible now
than it would otherwise be. And the only reason that the U of I will not
take over the downtown is out of its own good grace. I hope that NSA has a
similar attitude but I honestly worry that it does not! 

My anger at NSA is over its blatant disregard for the beliefs and feelings
of many of the local citizens and its blatant disrespect of social, moral,
and legal conventions. It has nothing to do with their religious views. And
I very much resent, Donovan, your constant insistence that things are
