Well, Hello, Dalai: The Twelfth Son of the Lama Rolls In to Give His SMU Lecture Today

The tail end of the Dalai Lama's motorcade as it rolled past Unfair Park HQ moments ago
New Observer-er Leslie Minora was headed out to an interview moments ago when she got stuck waiting for a mini-motorcade passing in front of Unfair Park HQ on Maple Ave. She asked a Dallas Police officer what was going on. He told her: Why, that's the Dalai Lama! Oh, right. That's today, innit.

Sure is -- and I know of at least a handful of Friends of Unfair Park who managed to snag ducats for his 2:30 appearance on The Hilltop. But to those who can't make it to the SMU campus for the McFarlin Auditorium appearance, keep in mind: The university will stream the lecture live, flowing robes and all. Right here. And remember: When you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.

You've gotta love how the Dalai Lama has accomplished so much over the course of his life, yet in many quarters is best known for his non-appearance in an 80's golf comedy movie. But as he would say, gunga galunga...

Big hitter, the Lama. Long.

Maybe he meant something different, but it seems to me total consciousness upon your death might obviate the tools of hospice. You might have that going for you, hope it works out to be nice. Now, about that sod you're working on?

They have more security at SMU for this than they ever did for Tony Blair, George W Bush, SCOTUS justices or anyone else. I think maybe only the Bush Library groundbreaking had more security and that had all sorts of sniper ninjas on rooftops.

They must be trying to keep Jaime Cortez from towing his ride.
