As Clockwork Coker reported yesterday, my (and Patty's and Chasen's) alma mater, Chapman University, want to buy the Crystal Cathedral–a beautiful proposal, given that the Rev. Robert Schuller set in motion the paranoid conservative politics that Chapman University now pride themselves on. It's attracting worldwide attention, enough so that KCRW-FM's 89.9 Which Way, L.A. public affairs show devoted a big chunk to the scandal yesterday.
Yours truly was part of the panel, giving the long view on the Crystal Cathedral; Deepa Bharath, the Orange County Register reporter that has kicked everyone's ass in reporting the story, was also on, along with a reporter for the Los Angeles Times and an architecture critic who was great. Enjoy!
