“Ground zero mosque” is open without fuss

I must confess I didn’t even notice the opening of the Park51 community center, previously known as Cordoba House and falsely called the “mosque at ground zero,” even though I have written about the controversy about the center’s opening on this web log.

It is a community center, not a mosque, and located on a busy street in lower Manhattan, not at ground zero.   The fact that its actual opening was not a big national news story indicates to me how the whole controversy was stirred up by Fox News and its followers as a bogus election issue.
