I’m quite happy about this – not least because, when it’s completed, I won’t have to send my students to the Salt Lake Valley any more to visit a mosque – and wish Utah County Muslims well. Heck, I may even donate a little bit, if I can.
I had heard about some opposition to the mosque, and had feared that it might be substantial. But, as things turned out, there seems to be no really serious community resistance. I’m proud of that.
Classes are done, by the way, and I’ve got a large stack of student papers to grade and a number of writing deadlines to meet, final examinations are being done on computer at a campus testing center and sent to me electronically (what a wonderful time we live in! and how I love grading finals!), and my wife and I are visiting our son and daughter-in-law and giving a fireside for a good friend.
