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.

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.
