Mr. Knight stood openly opposed to any prevalent religious oppression, especially in the Salt Lake Valley. Mr. Knight was allowed to observe over his life time, and more recently a five year stretch into an upper class Social Club (Bar) the greasy underbelly of the Mormon people that inhabit Salt Lake City. Mr. Knight was allowed to witness the Attorneys and Politicians that do the “church honest” dirty business that keep a crusade like control over the factious valley.
Mr. Knight is a 25 year health care provider, a scientist at hart with a B.S. in Cardiovascular Interventional Radiology from Weber State University in Ogden Utah. An A.S. in Radiology from Merritt College, Oakland Ca. Degan did not intend to be a writer but fell into a story that was just too good to ignore.
