|I for one would be happy to see that land put to good use, and heartily welcome the Purple Lotus Buddhists. They own the land and are entitled to do with it what they desire as long as they meet the statutory requirements, which it appears they do. I would not like to become as narrow minded as Mark Twain depicted himself in one of his stories; burning down an orphanage next door because it interrupted his view.
I can think of far worse neighbors than Buddhist monks and students, and far worse structures than a picturesque temple.
