Actually, that is a very fine idea that I hadn't considered - plenty of parking, plenty of space for classes, even room to grow - and the patronage of NSA wouldn't hurt the Eastside Marketplace at all.

  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 otherwise.
