08:49 am: Shocked Beyond Words (Luckily, I can still type)

Just heard that at some point in the last year, Obama -- to placate China -- refused to meet with the Dalai Lama.

The Dalai Lama!

For...CHINA???

Words fail me.

Apparently, Obama will meet with him this spring, using that as leverage to force China to negotiate with the Dalai Lama's envoys. And toughening up US-China policy in various ways.

Oh thank you!

Restores some of my sense of the order of life.

I met the Dalai Lama myself once when I was a teenager. I had no idea who he was and did not properly appreciate the moment, but it is cool in retrospect.
