Yes, the lame title of this post is blatantly stolen from the headline of the Age’s article of a couple of days ago.
This is the latest news from the Dalai Lama’s website.
An interesting release as we (Australia) prepare to play host to His Holiness in the coming months.
Also of interest is the whole debacle about which (if any) major Australian political leaders will meet with the Dalai Lama during his Antipodean visit reported here. Frankly a bit of a sad, and indeed embarrassing episode for Australia. Yet again we see PM Howard bowing to powerful world leaders above his own morals and Rudd simply riding on the wave of public opinion, forgetting that he actually possesses a brain of his own.
