School at Utah Valley University Starts Monday.

I registered for classes & I’ve been fighting with financial aid at Utah Valley University. School starts Monday. I’m pretty excited a just a little scared. I haven’t been in class for quite some time & from what I’ve been told, the classroom dialectic has changed.

The free & open exchange of ideas is no longer an option. Some speech by some students is not welcome.

I’ve decided if my voice is not welcome in a particular discussion, then I’ll keep it under my hate & dialogue with the teacher through email. I don’t want to cause a fuss & I also don’t want some younger students to feel like I’m the enemy.

Regarding my Boyd K. Packer research, I’m still working a bit every day. I’m slowly proceeding, but eventually, I’ll be able to start publishing papers.

Related to this, I’m going to be doing a load of volunteer hours working for a new on campus religious studies journal that’s yet to be named & I’m going to start working directly with Boyd Peterson, an editor on Dialogue, a Mormon Studies literary journal. I’m pretty stoked.

Hi.

Fat Mo here, and I'm still working on my Boyd K. Packer research. I'm writing this from 500 North Provo in front of the Mighty Baker where my son works as a pastry chef. I'm waiting to pick him up & take him up to the Restaurant Depot in Salt Lake.
Tonight & for the next couple days, I want to go over a few insights in how BKP defines LDS concepts differently than what I'm accustomed to. These subtle differences are what I'm looking for.
Thanks for being patient. Fat Mo.

Hello

Fat Mo here & this site is dedicated to my Boyd K. Packer research & eventual publication of his biography. Yes, he already has one. My approach will be to research & write an analysis of Packer’s public speeches & books & whatever else I can find & attribute to him. 

Unfortunately for you, most of my posts are published from my iPhone, so everything I post will be short (I’m a one thumb hunt & pecker). Hopefully, I’ll be able to post daily updates about my progress & research activities. 

Thanks for reading.
