There they go again




There go those Buddhist monks again, impressing me with their devotion to a noble cause. I'm glad to see these protests getting some coverage. For some reason, whether it's misguided PC-ness or a crush on Chinese food and pop culture, China's human-rights abuses don't seem to be attracting much attention around the world. In Brazil, the fawning I've seen over China as an alternative to US imperial power, even from smart people who should know better, is pretty sickening. So, anyway, by refusing to shut up and go away, Tibetan monks win my weekly award for doing the right thing and salvaging my faith in humanity.
