Two elderly women in China were just sentenced to a year of re-education. Their crime? Protesting at the the Olympics.
The heads of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism convened to ask for an apology from the government for religious discrimination.
Paul Ekman says right after the Olympics will be the perfect time for the Dalai Lama and Beijing to sit down for some good faith discussions. What a nice thought. Indeed it seems the current Dalai Lama has a repsonsibility to do all he can vis a vis Beijing in his lifetime because after he is gone, the opportunity will have passed.
